Speaking of color xterm, the xterm in XFree86 3.1.2D is now a color 
xterm, and a need for a seperate color xterm package should be negated 
come 3.1.3 (3.1.2D being a beta version). I am upgrading to 3.1.2D to fix 
a bug with the ET4000 card that's been hanging my system a lot, but it's 
kinda nice. It's X11R6.1, and has the color xterm are 2 of the biggest 
things going for it.
