thanks a million Ygarl
Your comments have finally clarified things for me ... esp the bit about not logging in as root
I wondered why Ubuntu disables access to root by default, and recommends that you log into su, if necessary.
I have decided to start again with a clean slate in Ubuntu (again) ... LOL
