Yes indeed - I had not thought of that - but in any event I also have to
switch the XP end so rebooting will be needed at some point anyway - but yes
once it is working I can switch between runlevel 3 and 5 as you say and
diddle in between- 

I will see how it goes once I have the card and play with the new
