corba's acceptable. :)

it's clearer that way. ;^)
in reference to joe at local.ie:
emacs doesn't have an edt mode? i'm shocked. if i recall correctly
it has at least two versions of a vi mode. i was always waiting for
someone to write a competing psychotherapist mode that followed
jungian (sp?) psych, or something along those lines.
i seem to remember people customising (-zing?) unix mail to mimic
MAIL, but maybe it was just the prompt. :)
edt. holy flashbacks batman.
 why yes it does! see this page:
it describes how to start edt emulation mode in xemacs. i
don't have emacs or xemacs installed so yer on yer own.
 *bzzzzt!* wrong. it has three. the page referenced in 
also warns users not to start one emulation in another. "don't
cross the streams!"
 i use a real editor: vi. but i'll admit when i was young and
naive (not to mention the owner of two fully working wrists) i
used emacs. now how many people here who had root for the first
time on their own linux box decided to test the theory that emacs
was so complete you could just echo /usr/bin/emacs >> /etc/shells;
chsh /usr/bin/emacs? or even cp /usr/bin/emacs /bin/init? 
 you're on your own - don't call me.
 ok, what you'd really need to do is write a shell script that would
mount the partitions and run fsck's and then have it exec an emacs
elisp script to do the rest of the setup. to make the RedHat emacs
distribution you could just change the SysVinit package.
