After so many problems seen day after day it is nice I think to

F8 was installed from a DVD and came right up with a video problem
cuzz I have a Nvidia video card. Fixed in 5 minutes with Nvidia

How do you know that you have a root kit?
I really do not know Jeff. But often, while using Firefox I get
an attack that puts a cross hatch screen on and removes the keyboard

hard reset will clear it.
This is how I think a rootkit would work and so I got rkhunter

The rootkits I've seen are very quiet. They survive by NOT doing
noticeable things. The quietly install servers or bots in obscure
corners of the system in hidden directories. What you have sounds
more like a cat playing in the wires under the desk. (I have personal
experience with that, too).
What does chkrootkit show?
I don't have chkrootkit but what I have is hard to get working as I
wanted to check /home. I can't seem to make that work. It did check
/usr and found some "warning" but the FAQ says they do not mean anything.
My cat stays out of my office, most of the time.
I yummed chkrootkit and ran it and it found no rootkit so it is not
