Sorry to turn the tables on your position as Distressed Newcomer, but I am
clueless as to how to use rpm to load Metro-X and you already have it loaded. I
just ftp'ed it from sunsite.unc.edu even though it is commercial software. Will
an ftp'ed version work other than as an upgrade? What do I do?
Second (there's always more, isn't there?) my X Windows screen is MUCH larger than
my monitor, so I only see a little of it at a time. How do I reduce it to where
the screen is the same size as the monitor?
And third, how do I dial my ISP from Red Hat? The command that worked in
Slackware does not work in Red Hat? Thanks for any help.
