I found the answer in the FAQ: Use the elliptical select tool, hold down CTRL key to constrain as circle, fill the selected area with new color, right click on selected area, choose SELECT, SHRINK, shrink selection by whatever number of pixels you want your circle width to be, right click again in selected area, choose EDIT, CUT. Voila, one beautifully antialased circle. I have a second question. If "how do I draw a box?" is a "frequently asked question", why isn't there a "draw a box" button on the tool palette in GIMP? Is there some historical reason?
