    Window Managers

    I have been using RedHat since 7.3 and have a couple questions:

    1. With RH9 they stopped putting Windomaker on the ISO . Is there a specific reason?

    2. Do I have to install Gnome or KDE? Can I just use a Window manager such as Blackbox.

    You most certainly don't have to install GNOME or KDE to use blackbox. Just install the section called "X windowing system" by itself. I don't know if they ship blackbox, though.

    No blackbox is not on the ISO but the download is minimal. Thanks for the info. I have finished my backup and am now reinstalling.
