Yeah - I've tried them.  eeebutu is a non-starter.  It is two darn fat,
slow and ugly.  eeexubutu might be alright but I use wmaker and really
thats what I want to use.  I just need to access all my hardware either
through the command line (prefered) or through programs loaded on the
wmaker menues.

The alsa configuration on this thing is just awful and the automounter
is also a mystery.  There seems to be no way to automount the SSD
without running nautalis.

Thanks for the tip.  I'll take a look.

You must be a stupid engineer then, because politcs and technology have been attached at the hip since the 1st dynasty in Ancient Egypt.  I guess you missed that one."
