BBC Radio 4 Program about Virgil and the Aeneiad

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/history/ino ... time18.mp3

It is an mp3 file (11 megs) about 45 minutes long.
It is an interesting listen!
If the link doesn't work, they only post it for listening for a limited time, I have the file on my computer and it ...

Beginner Question

Salvete omnes,

In the fourth principal part why do some books (and people) tell you to use the -us ending while others tell you to use the -um ending?

e.g. claudo, claudere, clausi, clausus/clausum

I'm a quality manager and seek to reinforce the value of our customer via a motto.

Does Fautor primoris mean customer first? Well, patron first.

Ablative case...

Here is the explication the first chapter of "Beginner's Latin" gave me, but still I do not understand it...

Ablative case: 'with', 'in' used (not always) with prepositions (e.g. cum, in)

What does exactly that means? I tried to translate it to English, but it appears that English does not have such case...

Could someone explain it to me???

Thanks!!! I would really appreciate it :D
