    shouldn't icewm be shipped with most distros so all this tarball and rpm stuff is redundant?

    Red Hat just ships twm, KDE, and GNOME. Although if he is running RHL 8, he has window maker too.

    But that is all a moot point. There are binary rpms out there. Eventually the guy uis gonna want a new app or to upgrade. He will still need to know how to add rpms or even build an srpm. Neither is really that hard.

    Re:IceWM download??

    Well, tomorrow I will get apt setup for ya if you cant. I expect a little effort to learn here. I understand that you are a newbie to linux, but we all were here. And we all got it with alot less help, alot shittier releases, and alot more days spent reverse engineering shit that doesnt need it.

    When it takes a month to get a sound board working, because you had to recompile a kernel 15 times to get all the shit in there, then you truly know ;D

    I started on Slackware back in 1997. I had to walk uphill both ways in the snow without shoes. And DAMMIT I LIKED IT!!

    no no compiling.

    Wine, that is up to you, you can get that on your own thru synaptic.

    I will get you started off with a working system. Then we can go from there

    Lol . . . and agreeing. My journey may not have been quite as arduous (started later) but I'm sure a lot of people can relate to that post. Nicely said Schotty.

    Some days the arduous task is just getting out of bed. I can get my mouse working under one distro and can't under another. Strangely enough, though it is very frustrating, I'm enjoying the time that I'm spending sans GUI. Learning what I am learning is a priceless thing. With Windows I would be out of the loop since you can't really learn the internals with out some kind of nda.

    Never thought so much pain could be so much fun!

    Cheers
