Yes that's true, but it was sooooo slow compared to Debian that I didn't think 
I should take the risk.

I heard in a podcast I got from iTunes that Mepis is a good distro for old 
machines, that is why I wanted to try it out.  It didn't seem to do as good a 
hardware detection job as Debian did, and Debian didn't do an outstanding job 
of that.  Debian does run on this old machine when Xandros and Linspire would 
not, because it is so old (ThinkPad 560).

BTW I fixed the "mailto" problem with Evolution/Foxfire.  Thanks for posting 
the fix information.
