and consider that X11 is crying for a good UI for configuration.

I hear Mandrake have quite a nice GUI configuration tool these days.

IIRC when i installed Gentoo in my newly-built box in 2003, i used the X config file created by Mandrake from my 2000 box, as i use the same monitor for both machines.

Gentoo is not for beginners, but it doesn't hurt to have good tools
& sometimes that includes a GUI interface, eg configuring Xscreensaver.
even Vim is easier to use in the Gvim version, at least for me.

there's no harm in being a fanatic, if you know when to stop (grin).

True all the way.

B.T.W., I have a 'spare' 5.5G part on my main drive -- Something like that could be a good place to keep that 'user-friendly'/grade-school linux for things like this, I think.

P.S., so you live in a motor-home, huh?  Cool sig.
