Hi Tim

The one thing I realise is that to progress I really do need to bypass ubuntu 
and consider installing Debian directly and things should be more stable 
thereafter - after the learning curve. Though, I'll also watch out for the next 
live CD. I'll also try some of the other suggestions.

I look forward to using Trinity soon....ish !!


Thanks to everyone else who gave advice.
