Thanks for that Dan. I am aware of that one. In fact all my user files 
are still in /home and that of course includes virtualbox and all the 
virtual OSes in it. It worked under Mandriva/PCLinuxOS - it don't work 
under Kubuntu.

Also I now find that it won't see my USB scanner which M/PCL both do 
without any problem.

Think I'll give up. Been here 48 hours now and still not fully operational.

Still can't see why the world seems ubuntu fixated. It don't work for me.
Sorry folks - I did try.
