After Freespire did it's number on my drive, I trashed it. I'm running Mepis 7.0 and dual booting XP. Mepis was very easy to set up and think I will stick with it a while. As for Freespire, probably won't mess with it anymore. There are plenty of distros out there, and I just really wanted to learn more about how to play with linux anyway. Still have a lot of questions, so I'll probably be posting again soon. And by the way, I already have an HP Printer and there was no problem setting it up in MEPIS.

Sorry you had to use a sword & sledgehammer approach, but I'm glad your problem is solved & that you're happy w/ MEPIS. It's been my primary desktop for over 3 years & I'm not changing soon .
