Thanks; I will check this out :-)

I like this idea much better, however!  I wasn't sure how 
to go about this, but there's the link--so, who knows?  I 
do wish to learn to program in Linux...

No external drives, but *perhaps* my father would let me 
take my 30-gig drive (the one I'm putting Debian on) and 
plunk it into his system for a spell (his computer's just 
in the next room!)

Thanks for the ideas...I'll wait for the morning to see who 
else responds to my Email to the list, and I'll do some 
exploring then, too.

Thanks again,
