Hi Andreas,

Tried you suggestion above and another couple of hours downloading went on. So 
obviously some bits were missing.

When I boot to KDE now, KDE 3.1 loads and the standard icons come up on the 
screen but there is no panel at the bottom. When I right click the mouse I 
can make some changes but I can't find a way to get to the KDE control panel.
