        A lot of users hate them (I don't).

        What do you mean with running list?

        I recommend Multistrip >= 1.3 (don't try version below, they are
ugly). But Multistrip is very nice although you should try to cure your
problems by disabling all unneeded applications and to watch if you
machine will become more stable.

        Hmm. As I don't use true colour I can't say anything about it.

        I am using MinT 1.15, N.AES 1.1.7 and HD Driver 6.x and I don't
have any problems (with Doug's latest toolkit 5.x)

        What do you want to do with it? Do you want it to use as a Shell
like bash? For this purpose I am using Mupfel.

        I see. So you are from the U.S.? I ask because I couldn't find
out what means.
