Go look at the 2100 stuff - typically there isn't a huge change in a
relatively small change in model number. Hey, guess what? they have
the same graphics card.

Drop 'em an email. Maybe someone will take the time to download a copy
of Knoppix or burn the copy they've already downloaded to CD-R for you
(what? doesn't *everybody* have Knoppix? :). They may also have an
installfest or other get together during a time that's convenient to

I shoved that into google...I think I saw the answer, but it was on a
Greek mailing list *in* Greek, and I don't read Greek... :-( So, yes,
it was all Greek to me... :-)
My local DNS server is flakey at this moment, so my ability to connect
to any given website is equally flakey... :-(
I just switch gears, and looked in GoogleGroups, and I should have
realized this, but it's likely a permission problem. Take a look at
/tmp, in particular .X11-unix. Try something like this:
$ cd /tmp
$ ls -lR
The files of interest will be:
drwxrwxrwt 2 root root 1024 Nov 11 00:20 /tmp/.X11-unix
srwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Nov 11 00:20 /tmp/.X11-unix/X0
and first field for .X11-unix should be like the one above. You may
not have a .X11-unix/X0 file, tho.
