I appologise to anyone for annoying them, as the faq that -I- read was
quite unclear as to what mailing list went where. I would, however like
to point out that the question I asked had nothing to do with any specific
platform. I'd try to re-find it, but I very much dislike having to
reboot just to use a graphical web browser (eg I do it in dire
emergencies, and that's about it).
I will attempt to do a little more research (assuming the faqs are not
misinforming me) prior to asking for help (though usually by the time
I've asked for help it's too late).
