Chill out friend.

Seriously now? All my attempts at humor set aside?  :-)

You had said the you downloaded and 'ran' (whatever) the KDE Live-CD. I
did that this time, I had not done it before, and it did not ask me for
a password. I had already tried the GNOME Live-CD and it did/not do the
same.

I really have no idea why you had your problem. I was just trying to
lighten the problem.

Life is too short to get so upset about such little things. Trust me.
You will live longer.

So I gather that you have solved this problem then? Or not?

Points of interest for you.

If / When you have a problem.. ask for help with clear examples. And
answer questions as best as you can. Asking for clarification of their
questions so that you can answer better.

Rants and screams tend to turn people off and turn people away. Most
especially those that know the most and have the answers to your questions.
