What version of Outlook??? I used to use Office XP's version, but have 
decided on Thunderbird, mostly because it doesn't assume that I want to 
send html, unless I tell it to (unlike Evolution or Outlook).

Thanks. Glad that everything worked out for you in the end.

No problem. In Fedora's defense, when I use a system installed kernel, 
they don't prepend /boot to the lines in the grub.conf, so they might 
not need a /boot/boot link. I just found that it makes things easier, 
and only wastes a *small* amount of space, for the trouble that it can save.


Bitte schoen. You're welcome, etc
