    There is an old saying in in the *nix world, that if it doen't work from the command line it doesn't work.
    Obviously I'm not saying that this holds true for X11 interfaces, but it does for all services, that includes wireless. Much of this stems from the fact that the vast majority of *nix boxes will never have a keyboard, let alone a monitor connected to them. Many people have used different flavour of linux including debian for wireless bridging and routing without every using a graphical interface, so yes it will work that way.

    You can start whatever you want on boot, it's up to you. You just need to add it to your init/rc scripts.

    Dig the glowing eyes Llama. Were those always there? Never noticed before.

    Code:
    su wydaddy
    cat /dev/tickle1 | /usr/bin/schoolgirl
    Silverwolf 2 is dead.
    Silverwolf 3...?

    Thanks, I just added them yesturday. I wish I could make it pause while unlit for a longer period of time. Unfortunately, The Gimp only lets you choose one frequency for all the frames.

    Code:
    mount /dev/schoolgirl

    Is there a site where the basics of linux are explained? I'm even confused starting at the file structure. I understand partitions are mounted as sort of folders, and dev probably stands for devices, but stuff like etc and what not escape me.
