First, thanks for bringing the thread back to my OP problem.

I'm getting a little confused... are you talking above about doing
this from [l]ubuntu with chromium-browser... if so how are you
`enabling' flash.

I'm aware of the need to login periodically.  Just didn't get that was
the cause of being redirected like that.

Coming from a different host, it wants a login I guess... thanks for
the tipoff.

Haven't been able to get to the login screen from lubuntu as
apparently chromium-browser lacks flash.

I see now that when it jumps to Jeff Flake or whatever video is top on
the other list... Its trying to accommodate my browser lacking flash.

I thought the videos must be different, one flash the other not.  but
now I see its just finding me something my browser can play.

OK, got the installer installed... I only have access via ssh to the
subject lubuntu OS at the moment so will see what happens later today.

Thanks for the great input.
