That may be where I am going wrong <g> Do I need to download 
something else other than the 'setup' distribution? Now that 
I am getting into things, I can see that the xserver is 
4.2.0-29, but XWin is still 4.2.0-1.

Yes and no.
I would like the xinerama option for the development 
machine, I'm used to it on Windows <g>

I would like to be able to run each monitor as a defined 
screen, then I can just direct a picture sequence to each 
channel - but that is work in progress anyway.
