	That's not needed. I'm using 2.2.18-pre21.

	It would have been better if you used deb packages for
it. Using the tgz way, dpkg will get a bit crazy about dependencies.

	In XFree4, there are not that lot of X servers from
XFree3. There is only one server - XFree86 - and several drivers. You
must specify it in xf86config.

	Silly thing you've done: you chose wmaker ;-PPP
