Steve, the Mint Mate tuts I made may help you set it up. They are all on my Youtube but on this PDF the controls are in the order that they should be used.

Just a heads up about downloading Zorin. I decided to give it a try today but on their website they have this warning:

ATTENTION: To avoid any complications, we recommend you to download Zorin OS using Firefox as other browsers may corrupt the file and may cause errors.

Sure enough, the download was compromised using Opera (my primary browser) and IE10 (my secondary browser.) The MD5 checksums didn't match. Any ideas why Zorin would be picky about which browser is used to get the download? Does that also mean Zorin will force people to use Firefox as their default browser?

Yeah, I have seen that too. But I don't even have Firefox in Windows. I used the IE9 and did not have any problems. But if the checksum is off, you better not use it.

Thanks Wolfgang for this tutorial - Nice work!
I followed it and have Zorin running under Win 7 64 bit.
Is it possible to add a "Quick Launch" type toolbar to the Zorin taskbar ?

I am not aware of a Quick Launch facility in Zorin. But maybe the guys of the Zorin forum have an idea.
