Sorry, but I just want things to work; I really don't have the time to 
explain to new comes how to find out chip codes. I'm not entirely 
certain I could quickly (and I've been a computer enthusiast for around 
25 years now).

If they just want to do e-mail, watch videos from YouTube and 
participate on MySpace -- and occasionally do homework with Open Office 
when they finally get forced to -- why on earth would they want to learn 
command line commands?

Just some food for thought :)
