Ok haven't had a chance to look at anything today (buying a new car yay me!)
but just to quickly answer the above.

* I'm not using dial-up at all. Cable ftw!
* I tried the Ctrl-Alt-Backspace, but my keyboard doesn't seem to respond at
all.  It's seems about as futile as flogging a dead horse.  I haven't tried
any other WMs -- I went with KDE since that was the only one I had ever
heard of and it had a nice install section in the handbook about it :) Could
anyone suggest perhaps
a different one I could try?  Either way - I'll be following a the
suggestions in a few previous emails about trying to isolate the problem and
see where I end up.
