Thanks for your help. Right now I'm in the midst of
portupgrading three servers. So it'll be awhile. My
test platform for Gnome is my Thinkpad 600E that I've
beefed up as far as possible. The laptop is my testbed
for new wm's. (I figure if things will work on a 400MHz,
288M computer, they'll work elsewhere ... I may be wrong!!)
Will I be able to edit this "startup"? All I want to do
is find the right file to drop in some customization.
