I'll not use anymore possible html tag markers in any explanations.
er uh..........I forgot about the FAQ's*grin*
I was thinking more about helping this person speed up X any in any way possible even if just by a barely noticable amount.
I checked out 11r2(base+srv+perl only) today at work and thought the new dialog based setup was GREAT...........very attractive work there.
Anyways I think I'm going to upgrade(reinstall)muLinux on that old beater machine that I'm offering from.
!yes!.............that machine is serving this muLinux zip file from an mulinux 10r5 machine*chuckling*
