Check /etc/hostname.

It should be the hostname without the domain part (like "mybox". 
Then in /etc/hosts you should have a line like	mybox.mynet.home mybox

fstab should be created after the base system has been created, I
believe. This is why you have tell which fs to mount where in the tree.

resolv.conf should be created if you answer the questions about
nameservers during installation.

They are started in /etc/init.d/netstd_nfs, but only if you export
some directories in /etc/exports. Otherwise they are not needed.

JC> 4.  I get this error in my /var/log/xdm-errors

JC> System: `/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/xkbcomp -w 1 -R/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb -xkm -m us -em1 "The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:" -emp "> " -eml "Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server" keymap/xfree86 compiled/xfree86.xkm'

JC> What is causing this?  How can I stop it from writing this to xdm-errors?

Don't know about these. Maybe some typo in the keymap file? Try the
xbase/xserver from slink.

JC> corner and it is sometimes a long distance to move the cursor.  How do I

Key Left  A C Scroll -100 0
Key Up    A C Scroll +0 -100
Key Right A C Scroll +100 +0
Key Down  A C Scroll +0 +100

Should do it. Be sure you don't use numlock, as it is another

This is most likely a result of the error you mention in 4.

JC> 6.  One more thing with fvwm2.  I added the following to .fvwm2/post.hook.

JC> PixmapPath /usr/X11R6/include/X11/pixmaps

JC> But I still do not see any of the pixmaps on the popup menu.  How do I

Maybe because the application don't specify a icon for the menu. I
have a miniicon for gv (Apps/Viewers/GV). If you also have it, then
everything is OK. Check /usr/doc/menu for infos how to provide your
own entries for the menu, in which you can enable miniicons.
