:) Work thing - need XFree86 4.0, wanted to put Debian on, but 2.2
(disks I have) only have 3.3.6. "Official" distro at work is RedHat. If
it were me I'd put on 6.1 and upgrade what I needed. Apparently we're
waiting until RedHat 7.1 (or 7.2? Not sure what's current) before we
upgrade. Such are the woes of life.
