    now that i have that working, i'm faced with so many choices on what to install that i'm about to lose my mind.. i just keep staring at the portage directory, thinking that maybe it will tell me what to do... but, alas, i'm actually going to have to exercise free will on this one... maybe my problems would be solved if i just did this once and for all:
    Code:
    rm -rvf /*

    Glad that you got X working...when you used the CTRL+ALT +/- did you use the KP +/-? It doesn't work unless you use those.

    And I wouldn't suggest rm -rfv / ....it's like...puter suicide...or homocide...or something...either way...it's bad.

    well, i don't think i'd ever have the heart or be mad enough to ever give the 'rm -rvf /*' command on my linux box.. but there have been times when i've wanted to do something similar to my parents' XP box...
