I am amazed, dumbfounded, totally blown away Felix.

Someone has been working on the code behind the network icon on the task 
bar, and I was able to setup a one machine network using it that  
actually worked!

So the install is proceeding apace.  But touchpad is alive yet. :(
I've no idea how fast, but the install gui has more color depth than 
Mints did when booted to it after the install.  This old machine could 
even look decent if I got froggy, and opened the screen & replaced its 
leds with 10x brighter ones.  Since I am a CET, I'd imagine that would 
not be beyond my pay grade.  Unfortunately, the 80 years on the wet ram 
are showing in my short term memory.

Thanks Felix.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
