Hmm. Well, the size of the font you should be able to adjust to your
needs by playing with the fluxbox styles.  As far as the xterm
scrollbars, I have no clue.  It wasn't working for me here either.  It
looks like that's something that fluxbox does.  I'll try to check it out
when I have more time, but I don't think any changes in that aspect will
go into the next iso.  If if really is a fluxbox issue, I'm sure it's
configurable.  Otherwise, you can always edit root's .xinitrc to not use

But, glad you liked the cd otherwise :)
