Tried it. No go. I also tried changing the "vga" setting to
1024X800(?) also didn't work.

Oh right, good idea! I'll give this a shot. Will this require an
internet connection? That machine is not connected.

Actually its running memtest as we type (I am at work)! this problem
comes up after the ubuntu boot menu, and a few moments after the
status bar runs. I will be d/l the current 7.10 xubnutu at today and
I'll give the alternate CD as well.
Thanks a lot for the ideas, this LUG (I just joined yesterday) is very helpful.
