Thanks for the tip, and I'd love to try your advice, but I'm very new to linux and, honestly, I have no idea what you just said. Can you help walk me through the process you're describing a bit more?

My thanks to Silverbear on the MepisLovers forum for bringing to my attention a genius analogy! It concerns using the CLI.
