Yes when i get home.

Is there some hope that the kt600 is somehow similar to other
supported via chipsets?

things i hate about my linux pc:

1. it takes more than a second to boot up
2. keeps asking about filenames and directories
3. does not remember what i was working on yesterday
4. does not remember all the changes i have ever made
5.cannot figure out necessary settings by itself
