I figured that out after I sent the message. All I can say is that it  
was after midnight and I am getting too old for these late night  
tests.   :-)

So I will just work with this installation then. I was a bit startled  
by how much it changed with the new KDE. On my widescreen monitor the  
panel did not go all the way across the screen and the trash can was  
positioned like I would have expected it to be at a lower resolution.  
I had to move it to the corner, but I suspect these are problems with  
the KDE side rather than PC-BSD.

I have to say I like your installer better than any other I have used.  
It is the fastest installation and it is very easy to follow.
