As you know, short term memory is the 2nd thing to go, but I honestly 
don't recall choosing it.  I did a text install and basicly just chose 
everything because I had a feeling x was going to be fubar, and it is, I 
cannot use the same 1600x1200 screen I use in FC2 because its wrapped on 
all 4 sides, so I have to revert to the next lower resolution but thats 
somehow overridden for a narrower aspect ratio.  Pictures are distorted 
when displayed by being just obviously a bit too narrow for their height.  
I'll compare mode lines and make it work eventually, but thats not at the 
top of my list ATM.


Cheers, Gene
