Hi Ed,

I did not mean to be 'nasty' here. But? I often see people that *think*
that they know a lot or people that actually *do* know a lot confuse
Newbies, either to Linux in general or some program, with all kinds of
(he ducks under the desk here) *Geek Speak!*  Do this!!. Try this!! Try
that!! All written in *Geek Speak!* to a Newbie. IMHO? Sometimes, many
times, the *Geek Speak!* folks make things too hard. Think about it.

Two possibilities. PEBCAC or his hardware. My guess would be the first.
Newbie stuff. Whic is in now way bad. Everyone has to start somewhere.
But First question? user experience? Second? What hardware? there are
others. They depend on the answers to the first ones.

Virtualbox is the most thoroughly documented program I have ever since
ever. The "Help File" is a searchable PDF. If 'your system' can read a
PDF and if 'you' can read and comprehend all will be revealed. But? Once
again it is written in *Geek Speak!*.

Honest. Read the 'help me' question. Is it a Newbie or 'knida Newbie' or
'I think I know what I am doing' question. And then> Don' everyon jump
on him/er with tons of suggestions.

Ya' think?
