*sigh*. Yeah, this is  a real mess.  I wish I understood more about it
so I could help figure things out. About all I can do at this point is
test out anything you come up with.  Please let me know if there is
anything else I can do to help out.

Thanks!

In France, there's a popular saying about Linux that essentially translates as:
"Linux? You can get a less powerful system, but it will cost you more."
