	hi chris,

	i'm taking this offlist so i don't show my totsl ignorance about 
	running X11 and my new intel duo with i386 and 7.2.

	circle just before the boot sequence but that may be built into the

	(another reason for keeping this offlist is that my network pal says 
	to NOT run X on my server ... simply for the sake of simplicity.  i
	will not use the computer for anything except CTWM  for root, which
	will make doing sysadmin tasks vastly easier.  nutshell: if i do need
