Greetings all,

I like the idea of separating the instructions into two parts, one part 
for our default install of a RULE-ified desktop system, the other for 
developers that wish to customize.  Before my recent & hasty trip to the 
USA, I started trying to understand the slinky installer, so I will 
return to that task.  I have a system here that I can experiment with 
(P166 notebook w/ 104 MB of RAM) so I'll see what I can do in terms of 
FC2 test 3 as a starting point once I have the FC2T3 iso's downloaded.
