Hi Doug

Thanks for the reply. Honeslty, even though using GNU/Linux from '98 would 
not be able to do what you have suggested/done. Do you have any idea why the 
LiveCD should give me a cpu context error in the first place? Is this bug 
(whatever) documented any where?

Thanks again!

Warm Regards
Bob
