Good to know I'm not alone. That will prompt me to head to Mandrake's site 
to see what they have posted when I have time after work. I was pretty 
excited to try out 2.6, but my baloon's deflated right now. Guess either 
they need more time or I have something not set correctly. Hey, that's what 
I get for trying a .0 release, right? :)
