I now get a first idea of what all those messages mean...

Unfortunately not.

No, but I'm not afraid of it. I am willing to learn and try, but I guess I'd 
need quite a lot of guiding thru the necessary steps. So, if you feel up to 
help me, I'll be glad to take the opportunity, of course...

(I have some programming skills from earlier times (COBOL) and know some 
script languages (php4, JavaScript), however no object oriented languages, 
but at least the "basic understandings" are given, I guess.)
