That is good hear.

Win2k was never meant to be a user OS anyway.

But I would hope that you keep her Ubuntu more up-to-date than you do
your Fedora. The Fedora, F-10, that you are using and the TBird that you
are using, 2.0.0.24, were both EOL years ago. I would suggest that you
should update to take advantage of the many, many bug fixes since then.
But even more import than that would be the security patches that you
have missed out on in both Fedora and TBird. And pretty much everything
else.
