I have never been able to get the RedHat X based install to
work on my machine, either because of a video problem or
because it couldn't find the mouse. This is the one thing
that makes me doubt the wisdom of using an X based install.
X is commonly thought to be too complex for individuals to
use and I have found this to be somewhat accurate. Still,
I think that without a graphical install SEUL will not be
taken seriously.
