    yes, that's the idea. well not windows apps, but X apps via cygwin (or Xming which I havn't looked at yet).

    This too is an option. But I want it to work the way I want it to work!!! Isn't that why we spend so much time dicking around with Linux?

    Just as a continuing note on this saga, somehow I can't even run 'startx' on cygwin anymore. I haven't had a chance yet to try to fix it, and I don't know what I did to cause it. As of last night, it's saying something about unable to connect to the server (that being the xhost server running locally, nothing to do with the network in this case).

    More fun on the way

    nVidia GeForce Go 7400
    Fedora 10

    The real question is what time is it and why the hell am I still screwing around with my computer?

    sorry to bump an old thread.

    I'm curious to know the outcome of the OP dilemma? Any progress in thirteen months?
