My newest MadTux machine arrived the other day and I got everything working perfectly today. The machine itself, like the first one, is just great! Fast. Inexpensive. A wonder to behold for such a low price.

anyway. Also, MadTux, though shipping it with Vector loaded, complained that I did not pay the extra fee to install Vector. Don't know how that happened, as I was paying attention this time and did not notice any place on the order form to pay extra for the OS install.
