I'm trying to go as far as possible, but only to accomplish the desired end result.
You correctly pointed out that I am an "A" type person.
well "A" type people have their strong points too. I am very logical and detail orientated.
So..... with the right help and direction I can go very far and learn alot in the process.
As of today I'm very happy what I've learned with the help of others that have provided me help.
I am not reinstalling the minute things don't go right, instead I'm looking for a configuration issue that might be the reason I'm not able to do what I want. I am probing deeper into on-line material and looking at other post to see if I can find similar problems that have already been answered. I am checking Linux's help files to try to answer my questions.
But when I can't find the answer I'm looking for [I ASK FOR HELP!]
And as a result ( Kudo's to everyone that has given me technical hints) I now have a beautiful desktop (full color) with a working mouse!
I am trying to do more by myself now, but there are still little things that I am still trying to solve.
With continued help from others [maybe in a few months] I will be a comfortable Linux user.
You strike me as a "O" type person (maybe a little to reserved and hesitant to take risks)
I am very happy with the progess I am making, and thing are looking better everyday.
