    Good advice, and I'll make it one of my first moves when I reinstall.
Unfortunately I didn't write it down, so, no-go this time. Oh well, I guess I
chalk it up to experience, and use this as an excuse to check out a newer
distro than the COL2.0 I've been running. And maybe get Linux it's own machine
(or at least disk) sometime soon too.

And I think in the future old Dr. Norton & I shall part ways too.
