	This point intrigues me - how is it possible?  Something of the sort may be 
happening - I hope to have Steve Jenkin here again tomorrow (Thursday) and 
discuss recent developments.  I use only Linux to login to the internet but 
do then sometimes remove the Linux hard drive and replace it with a Win 98 
drive.  Could a virus somehow get from  one to the other?

	Incidentally one reason for making such a switch is disatisfaction with the 
Linux database system Base.  Does anyone else use it with whom I might 
exchange points of view?
