    "Either" is used as a distinction between two alternatives or entities. So, either one of your examples is OK.

    Re: HELP!!

    billmcd has confirmed that you are right in your understanding of one use of either.

    The word is also used with negative constructions with a meaning similar to as well, also:

    Alan: I like Mary.
    Donald: I like her, too. I do, too. (
    or: so do I)

    Alan: I don't like Joyce.
    Donald: I don't (like her), either. (
    or: neither do I).

    A couple of suggestions for future questions: 'Help!!' is not a very helpful title for a thread.Try to use something that will give a clue to what the thread will be about, such as 'Problems with either.

    Please try to avoid MAKING POINTS IN CAPITAL LETTERS. This is not necessary.
