Well I am having problems with gpg. The FAQ tells me to click on
a hotlink. When I do that a pop-up called Archive Manager offers
to store the download in the root directory (/). Is this really
what should be allowed to happen? This is a very strange "security"
step, IMHO. And, if not in the root directory, where should it be
put? And then what is to be done to tell apt-get about it? IMHO,
the FAQ answer is too terse. Is there a package that I can download
and install from the command line rather than using something 
really opaque for Gnome?

Thanks Francisco. Despite my kvetching, to have this is progress.
