Question: Where do I get Privoxy program of which you speak, GSF 1200S ?
Post Script: It appears you have a lightening fast machine with massive memory.
The instructions at http://maketecheasier.com/install-tor-in-ubuntu do not work for me.
When I enter: sudo sh-c 'echo "deb http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org Ubuntu main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list'
I get the reply: sudo: sh-c: command not found
If I enter: it with "ubuntu lucid" as the distro version I get the reply: bash: /etc/apt/sources.list: Permission denied
Also, in my Vidalia settings it is looking for the Tor software in /usr/sbin/tor, which does not exist. How do I create it there?
PS, I'm a total noob and I'm not so good with computers in general. I failed QBASIC in highschool and Java in college. So you're going to have to talk to me like I'm an idiot.

Ok, I got Tor to install, and Vidalia has located it. However, when I try to run Tor through Vidalia, I get this message:
The message log has this to say:Vidalia detected that the Tor software exited unexpectedly. Please check the message log for recent warning or error messages.
If I try to kill the existing Tor process and let Vidalia open its own, the terminal returns "Operation not permitted."Sep 14 14:15:51.013 [Notice] Tor v0.2.1.26. This is experimental software. Do not rely on it for strong anonymity. (Running on Linux i686)

This is perturbing.
