Re: off-topic question:

I use XFree 4.0, and I love it;)  In conjunction with the 2.3 kernel's DRI 
and agpgart, plus good ol' MTRR's, I thoroughly enjoy it.

After you install 4.0 (I use the binary tarballs from XFree's site, and the, run xf86config (or something like that, I rebooted into 
Windows to check the mail) and it will go through a text setup of X.  After 
you complete this, vi /etc/XF86Config and look through it.  The config file 
is much easier to understand than the 3.x was, imho, so make changes like 
setting the mouse type to IMPS/2 if you have an Intellimouse, and telling 
it which driver to use (My G400 uses the mga driver).

Also, if you use agpgart or DRI, turn on the modules by uncommenting their 
lines in the config file
