I'm pleased that you got it working. You may be interested to know that
the club has access to a computer suite/school room at the Rowing Club
building, as long as we ask nicely in advance, so you can bring along a
problem desktop and plug it into the existing monitors and keyboards.
I noticed from one of your other posts that you were using an ISO from a
cover disk off a magazine. It is not unknown for ISOs to get corrupted
so, in your situation, it is often worth trying a completely fresh
download from the official web site, and burn a brand new disc, as a
