Well, I tried Shaun's suggestion and, lo and behold, I have a desktop! I
just 'uncommented' a line for a 72Hz, 640 X 480 screen and it worked.

EDULIX offered some more detailed info and I am still ploughing through

However... I now get the desktop with an "X" cursor but that's it - nothing
more. The cursor moves around - clicking does nothing nor does anything else
I do seem to help! So although it is 'frozen' part way through the boot
process, it hasn't completely 'locked up.'

For the moment, I will try some fiddling around but, once again, if anyone
can direct me where to look, debugging suggestions (or what questions I
should be asking!), chip in.

Thanks again for the help.
