It does open faster than before now, thanks. I would still like to install the K8 kernel though.

Try this in your /etc/environment file then.

Code:
## Added by me for no IPV6 in KDE
KDE_NO_IPV6=1
For the K8 kernel if Ubuntu does it like Debian then you will need to reinstall with a 64bit install disk, you can check if they have a K8 kernel by using apt-cache linux-image k8.

Should the enviornment file look like this?
Code:
PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/games"
LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
LANGUAGE="en"
KDE_NO_IPV6="1"
I don't have the AMD64 instruction set, so I can't put the 64 bit version on it. How would I just switch to the K8/K7 32 bit version without reinstalling Kubuntu?

For the LANGUAGE= you might want en_US:en for the K8/K7 you would need to install a new kernel with either K8/K7 in the name then reboot selecting it from the grub menu.

OK, I got the K7 kernel on, and I am running that. I downloaded it via adept. Things are a lot faster. How should I change the language part?

Just edit the file and put it in there now you may not even have to do this if everything shows up correctly. What does this command show you?

Code:
>$ locale
LANG=en_CA
LANGUAGE=en_CA:en_US:en_GB:en
LC_CTYPE="en_CA"
LC_NUMERIC="en_CA"
LC_TIME="en_CA"
LC_COLLATE="en_CA"
LC_MONETARY="en_CA"
LC_MESSAGES="en_CA"
LC_PAPER="en_CA"
LC_NAME="en_CA"
LC_ADDRESS="en_CA"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_CA"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_CA"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_CA"
LC_ALL=
