Thanks for that input....
but I happened to also remember (gee, it's been awhile!)..but I was running my old 500mhz machine then. So of COURSE that probably was a lot to blame!!!!!
Anyhow,...I still have the "can't dial out with Chestnut Dialer" problem that I had before. A nice fellow of the forum, here,..(called "over there") told me (way back then)...to go in terminal and type in something (something to give myself "root" priviledges when using Chestnut).....but now I forgot what that command WAS!!!! (eeek).
"Over There",....are you there? I see you in some other posts,....I need your help here. (Maybe I can search the archives).
Just got my new install of Vector on this better computer this morning,...now if I can just dial out with the Chestnut Dialer,...I'll see what it can do! (Sure is an attractive little distro, isn't it?) Goes a looooooooooooooooot faster than that "Big Brown Distro"!
