Now you know why there are so many linux distro "favorites". What works good for one person may not do well for another. Happy to see things worked out for you.

If you are finished with this thread please go to Thread Tools button at top of your first post and mark Solved.

Thanks to all for the suggestion of Ubuntu 10.04.1. I was so impressed with it, I decided to get rid of PCLinuxOS and install Ubuntu instead. Much better documentation and resources. Install went smoothly; slight problem setting up wireless, but resolved with update download. Problem getting bluetooth mouse to work, solved (after a couple of hours of googling and fruitless command line entries) simply by a full restart. Duh...
All credits go to CANONICAL...

Happy to know that. Enjoy your gnu/linux.
