plenty of disk images around to save the day! The reason I want to use
NTFS is because many of my video files are over the FAT32 size limit.
Ubuntu complained when it tried to mount my partitioned backup drive
but eventually Windows ran ckdisk on both partitions and now all is well.

- OK. Here's an update. Once I really got serious about updating some
files, I discovered that drag and drop doesn't work under Wine! That
alone is a deal breaker. Drats!
As to the NTFS stuff . . . I have copied some text and pdf files to XP
without a problem. Just hoping the wheels continue to stay attached.

wondering if you had run into the same problems I had (and if you did,
were you abel to correct them?):
* When the cursor scrolls to the top or bottom of the screen, it jumps
back 2 lines.
* Using "Save As..." Takes a l----o---n---g time.
* When pasting into a document, punctuation is changed to unicode.
* (can't remember any other right now.)
Otherwise, it works fine, for the most part. If I could just take care
of these minor things.
- * I can't drag and drop! That's a deal breaker.
* The libraries can only be switched with a nudge from F4.
It looks like Quanta + will provide a workable substitute for the basic
web design work that I do. (Or I can just boot into XP and get stuff
done there the old fashioned way. I'm not doing much coding at all
