Thanks for providing this link...

A slight edit to my results. Only my personal account was a bit off 
after installation, probably due to some changes I had made previously 
to get the icons to show up correctly. My "guest" account was set up 
perfectly after the installation.

I spent some time this am looking into the site in terms 
of what it does, what it is trying to accomplish etc. It certainly would 
be great if we could go this way. I look forward to hearing about 
others's experiences.
