First I made a typo-it is set browser/"the path"
Second user.r does store your email settings
Third, many Rebollers do use Linux but is not the majority
Fourth, I would suggest you get/install Altme get it
that is the main place people are hanging these days including many on Linux
when you have it installed,send me a private note with your real
name/alias/email address and I will have you added.I use Altme on Mandriva
2006 so see no problem using on Ubuntu
