I suppose ubuntu is certainly worth a try, but my immediate problem is
preparing a hard disk partition for Linux in Mac mini.  However I'll try to
get on with it without panicking now that I have got access to Paul's Web
site again:

Found it (my broadband router locked it out)!

    After trying Safari, Internet Explorer and Firefox all to no avail from
the same iMac, I tried (in some desperation) Internet Explorer on an old Mac
clone running OS 8.6 connected to the same home network.  When again I
exactly got the same outcome, it became crystal clear that either my ISP or
the router was at fault.  The ISP is very unlikely to selectively block out
one particular site, so I simply switched my router on and off once and
clicked the URL again.  Lo and behold, out popped the Mac Mini Introduction
page on the screen!  Thanks, Paul.
