	FWIW - I did persist with Linux but not with the PCUG Linux SIG because I 
found their meetings to be anything but for beginners.  One I went to was on 
how to link up a television with Linux - something way beyond anything I will 
ever want to do.  Individual members were helpful - including Rod himself - 
and since then I have found two more such - Brian and Daniel - via this CLUG 
the former of whom is still trying patiently to help me to get a modem
