I've actually come to like the taskbar from the M$ WinBlows world. I use
icewm on my PC at home - small and usable (pain to configure). Is there a
site to find out which wm's are available for PPC LINUX?

Actually, this was done for me. I was using dselect, and selected
"Install/Update" without selcting anything - it autobagically grabbed a
bunch of stuff I wanted/needed (lynx, rsh-client) as well as some stuff
that I probably will go back and remove (tetex, rsh-server, etc.) I'm
really lking the Debian packaging system much better than RPMs. I may
switch on my home machine!

Well, this is a stealthy install on a spare HD on a mac at work, so I
don't have alot of options for hardware upgrades. I can't justify a
3-button mouse when they think I'm use Mac OS 8.6. I found a way to map
F11 to button 2 and F12 to button 3 (by searching the mailing list
