   Thank you. killing off the session files with only one instance of
'nm-applet --sm-disable &' running seems to have done the trick. I've
rebooted her laptop a couple of times and there's only one icon displayed.


   Now to figure out why the wireless networking card won't work with this
distribution when it worked flawlessly with Slackware.

Again, thanks,
