I installed F8 on a new disk, copied everyone's /home directories to the disk, and then created new accounts that matched the same user/group numbers for everyone's account. I did it this way to preserve the original look and feel for everyone in my family (7 accounts). This retained the single panel bar and single "main menu" on the panel bar. I suspect that this might have something to do with the problems I'm experiencing. Thanks, -- Wayne.
