ch-b, you are correct -- GNOME 2 does look better than KDE3. I have it onone box at this moment at home. I am running it on RedHat 7.2. Once 8.0 is released, my whole LAN will be GNOMEd. I just am not in the mood to do any more source installs of this magnitutde. Unless RH has some rpms out finally.
