Ok... Now I'm in again. How long, I don't know. However, a new  
issue... My desktop. I'm using VNC to connect to a new desktop (:1)  
and it does NOT look like my new F10 desktop. In fact, all my icons  
are in a window on my desktop and I have to browse it. There is no  
"quick-launch" tool bar either at top or bottom. On the other hand, it  
does have other features of my FC6 desktop, such as the "workspace"  
icons clustered together in a square, instead of beside each other as  
in F10.

I'm guessing that this is the new "KDE" Desktop instead of the default  
Gnome desktop. If that's the case, I think I'll switch back to Gnome,  
and just use my KDE apps.
