Hi Lanny,

I was very particular when doing this install, and I did see the 
virtualization box.  I suppose I assumed it was something else when I 
did the first install.  I've now got a good install afaik at this point, 
so I'll start off by updating the basic system. I know there is a heap 
of stuff that has changed since 4.7, and I just gotta play catch up.  
I'm not one to jump on the latest and greatest...  xen is like a foreign 
language to me.. don't want it or need it.  Will peruse the archives and 
see what else I've got to get updated on..
