    Sounds like a great build. Any pics?
    Electric start, very cool.


    Would jump on the ebay pull starts except for the clearance issue with the HTs.

    I prefer Google Chrome for a windows browser. On my Mac at home, I'm stuck with firefox till Google gets in gear and releases a Mac version.

    Loven' the Chrome! Really want to try UBUNTU. Do they still have the free CD down load where you can run it off the disk but not change your present OS?

    { Download Ubuntu | Ubuntu } This will get you there download it then copy it to cd in iso format You can load it to the hard drive boot up in Windows or boot in Ubuntu You can boot it up in live cd mode without changing anything for a sneak peak !

    Very cool. Thanks GH. Vista is purty but huge and needs a lil simplification.
    (I am looking forward to windows 7 though. More curiosity then any thing else)

    I use Linux almost exclusively in various flavors. Ubuntu is the easiest generally and vista was a rush deal to copy some of the glitz that Ubuntu invented. Water ripples on the screen and a cube windows format that are all power robbers but cool for a bit. Open source in general is a good deal and I like it. Sharing kinda like our forum but cheeper than a Happy Times even.

    Do check the Ubuntu forums! Every quistion you have just type Ubuntu after it! I got wine up for Duplicating Dvds etc. Some of the learning is a bit of a pain in the but for a green horn. I don't have a use for windows any more except for my security camera system. Even that program is not propitiatory anymore. Glad you like it! It is fast!!
