Not to quibble but that line is clearly intended to be the main
instruction and supposed to get the job done.  And further were I not
so incompetent as I am.  It probably would have been sufficient too.

Thanks for your helpful input.  On this mornings bootup, I finally
came face to face with the `kde greeter' and have successfully logged
into a full kde Environment.  In fact at this moment I have KDE
running on VT 7, and fluxbox running on VT 8, display :0 and :1

The main reason I undertook to acquire a kde-desktop was based on
something Scott F. mentioned in msig-ID:

in a previous thread, where he mentioned being able to zoom into the
desktop and end up with a panning desktop.

Do you know anything about how that might be done?
