i agree with you there Vince. i dont know what happenned but im really
enjoing puting this system together from scratch i guess. fluxbox is
now up and running, i installed thunar, and worker as file managers,
and pidgin. so i guess im up and running even though finding i still
havent found out what happened with the initial install.
