I must have surgery and will not be able to sit up or raise my head for 
several weeks.  The idea is to create a very basic system so I can still 
do some work related tasks,  use wordperfect, go online and tellnet to my 
shell account,  etc.
Thought I might seek a tad more since I must have something, but that is 
the basic goal here.
