Not sure if this is something I want to tackle or not (then again, I
have reinstalled a few tiems and don't mind doing it again a time or two
if need to), but I might be willing to give it a shot. You might need
to guide me a little as what to do (or create a step by step guide on
what to enable/disable so I/we do it correctly), so can make sure I/we
are doing a good test.
