Would someone please hit me with a cluestick? I don't >understand this.

Just a quick hint for downloading files... If you click on a link to download a file, and the screen fills up with garbage (ie when I download a .deb file), hit the Back button, and Right Click on the link and choose save link as. While I'm running Linux, I have just made it a habbit to right click on the files that I want to download...

Hope This Helps,
