Re: [Evolution] New list member and curious

Thank you Patrick. I may just do that. I plan on adding more memory
too so I may just buy one of those too at the same time. Believe it or
not I have 2 gigs of memory on this thing and a lot of times I only
have 35% free. Something is certainly a resource hog. I've usually
only got firefox open and WMP going at the same time. I'm waiting to
add a new anti virus to my machine. Zonelabs does'nt have a Vista
compatable anything yet. I do love my zonealarm. I think I'm gonna try
Macaffee for an antivirus this time round. As soon as the three months
of Norton are up on this machine;>

If you don't want to partition your disk, you can also try VMware
( which among other things will allow you to run a
complete Linux system under Windows or vice versa. 2GB or RAM is more

versions with software preinstalled, many of which are no-cost (see
