I agree - it is rudimentary questions that *MUST* be covered by the web
page or the FAQ. "Frequently" asked questions...

I am happy to put in the reasoning the next time I update the pages
(probably this weekend). (UNLESS you object Suhaib.).

This group isn't moderated. It is 100% volunteer unpaid contribution.
Chris Faylor et al from Redhat listen in but aren't involved in the
development (unless you lot just got a lot of time ? :-]). So thanks for
your brilliant, inspired response that will get everyone assisting you
in this project.
Nuff Said.

Yes. Like you? The X-Server port has only just reached stablility - at
this point this is the development group, not a support group.
