[SLUG] XFree86 Version 4.0.3 / X Windows System

Thanks for your help, Matt.

I successfully ran

"apt-get install xserver-xfree86 xbase-clients"

(nifty the way apt-get fires up the modem for the download, then shuts it

except for one thing .... the install routine gave a very restricted choice
of video cards.
My system uses the NVIDIA TNT2 SERIES v.365 video card so I chose the 'nv'
option ...

When I rebooted I was still in console mode, with the following readout.

Any errors may be due to transcription first onto paper, then into Outlook
on another drive.
