   Solaris does this one first login.  In this case, it should be
possible to have a script in startx pick a window manager, and remove
itself after really starting X.  Would be nice...  Maybe have the
default home for a new user have this startX, and then delete itself
allowing the real one to be called.

  I still don't have sound up, but I haven't worked on it.  Sigh...  I
need a beer.

   As an aside, I had a minor list problem, and have received nothing
until now.  That means any cleaver replies to my first e-mail were
lost...  For that matter, I don't know if my first e-mail made it.  On
second thought, I need a strong Martini. :-)
