	Well not being in front of the system I can't say why it is
	not working for you. It should have.

	At this point it sound like you might need to do a clean
	install. You can do it without losing your home directory
	(assuming that /home is on it's own partition).

	Before you do a fresh install, back up all key data and
	configure file.

	But you might try to get someone closer to where you live
	to work with you on trying to figure out what is wrong before
	you do a fresh install.
