Back on the turf!

After an unsuccessful adventure called Linux system upgrade,
I am back on the turf.  What the whole matter taught me the
hard way were these two lessons:

1. Never change a running system.

2. Don't think new software will work with old hardware.

I ruined an entire weekend trying to get a recent Linux
distribution to work on my 5-year-old machine; after giving
it two more tries I decided to dig out the old installation
CDs and re-install the old system which took me less than
two hours to get it to work.
