Well I hope it remembers it properly then, or just pause it if you have to take 
a break verses actually shutting down the wizard.  Of course your internet is 
probably also faster than mine is I’m guessing.  

I did finally get my new version of linux installed.  Took a couple of tries 
though but we got it done.  So now that is running and I have at least most 
settings to where I want them.  Tomorrow will start by setting up the various 
apps that work online since I had it wipe the hard drive.  But I did save a lot 
of stuff to external hard drive, so that won’t be a very long set back.
