...momentary insanity indeed... I have a friend who's started doing that,
they're giving him something quite strong.

If I am one of those reasons? I'd like to be that important.

Cheap shots aside, may I tip my hat to Mr. Beekmans. I finished my first
LFS system yesterday. It takes up 230MB instead of 750MB, loads three
times as fast as RH7, at least, and there's no bullshit in the
initialisation scripts. Mmm, this is where I'm staying... well as soon as
I get X, KDE and some office stuff. Mucho thanks sir. And thanks too for
the strip-debugging tip, that killed about 90 megs.
