Re: rm -r * and the default prompt
The difference is that RedHat's X configurator configures not only X,
but also mail, news, printers, networking, etc. It's a configurator
that runs under X -- not really a configurator for XFree86.
If we are wanting to go that way; fine. I have no problem with it.
As long as we don't go so far as RedHat and make the X configurator
the *only* configuration aide in the system. I hate the choice of
either having to boot to X or find configs by hand.
