   Bad programs, are bad programs in any format...  But I agree with
you.  We need to remember who it is for.

   Actually, in this case, the blind are the best ones to lead.  You
will notice a problem and report it, instead of just fix it like a more
experienced user might.  As a way to start, put the distribution on an
FTP server, and do a minimum FTP install.  All the files not touched,
should be deleted.  That is a start.  Soon, we could have a distribution
between the full Inde, and Trinux. :-)
