If hitting I doesn't work, try disabling the graphical startup... I
forgot how to do that. Anyone?
Yes, the distros have the same basic commands, like ls for a directory
listing and cat for reading plain Unix text files, but some have different
packages, such as OpenOffice.org or Mozilla Firefox.
This is a test of the Really Sucky Email Client system. Again, this is only
(Outlook is the only client that will sync with my Palm...)
