[Fwd: Re: First time user of Ubuntu & Gramps]

Doug-11
Thanks! I'm not a Windows user (using Mandriva 2008.1), so I'm
forwarding this to the mailing list.

Dear Doug:

Ubuntu will automatically map to your windows partition!

Here is how I think:
open terminal
sudo passwd root
su -l
enter root password
cd /windows/C
and find your GRAMPS directory

then:

add that whole directory string to the database tab under preferences

Call me if you need further assistance... (253) 222-9044

Sincerely,
Rob
