	I just tried that but got rejected : 'not possible to write to /Trevor.  Check that 
you have write access'.  So went into Konsole, did 'sudo su' and tried again - but the 
same rejection.  Dolphin incidentally in the left column gives me Root and OS and Trevor.  
Trevor is the namesake I created and Root and OS seem to be synonyms.  I have since been 
looking at the mv command which looks promising - if I did  'mv  /media/OS/  
/media/Trevor/ '  should it work?  I hesitate a bit for fear I I muck up the operating 
system and find I cannot reboot.   :-(=
