RE: extremely off-topic: help

Actually, my Debian box comes up with a Mac startup screen (animated 
loading bar and all), while my home box has the Linux95 startup screen... 
Keep 'em confused!

But Win95 is supposed to be Plug-N-Play.  Easy to set up.  Just install
the CD and get a cup of coffee.


Oh, I needed a laugh.  I've fought with Outlook97 all day.  Nothing seems
to be named the right name.

Well, I used WINLOGO.  I have the ziped file still on my hd.  If you want
