Hi Dave

Yeah I'd seen that problem on the SuSE mailing list, naively I thought I had 
overcome that issue, probably not, I'll have a go tonight and see what 

My plan was to go back over the archive @ the weekend, I remember seeing that 
fix/trick, in keeping with my lazy sod persona thanks for that you've saved 
me half an hour or so and time is money :)

I've never run it on a Laptop, seen it tho, I was toying with doing a switch 
and running FC5 on my main box and SuSE on this Laptop but my girls are used 
to SuSE so it wouldn't be fair.
