I should have know, but I did not know. (If I did, I forgot. That's why I do 
run a home wiki for notes from me to me).  It is a useful command and should 
quickly tell me what is available.

Like most people, I do like GUI, but for learning CLI is more useful, because 
the commands are easily transmittable to such nice knowledgeable people as 
the CLUG members.

The "alternate"  (Ha, the Americanisms... In English that should 
be "alternative", IMHO) version of ubuntu is being burned onto a CD, so I 
should be able to play with your "how to", Chris.
