AFAIR Mandrake uses Xconfigurator. Failing that you can use xf86config
(but it's bloody hairy). Best bet is to have the details of your monitor
on hand as auto configurating thingies like Xconfigurator sometimes set up
the wrong thing. And if all else fails, just use a vanilla VGA xserver
until you have your details

Well, a search for "html editor" on freshmeat.net turns up BlueFish
(http://bluefish.openoffice.nl), August (http://www.lls.se/~johanb/august),
and Galway (http://netpedia.net/hosting/erin/galway.html). Galway looks
nicest to me, and has those script features you don't like about the GIMP :)

VMWare has had more time spent on development and runs on more platforms,
and Plex86 is still in development.
