Option ZAxisMapping "4 5"
all the time, and end up having
answered that a 5000 times

That makes them helpful, but not
necessarily a guru :}

Haha, exactly. You should do a search on my username and search with 'Xconfigurator' , I'm sure I've mentioned that a few thousand times..

Seemed when I first started, that was one of the big questions in regards to Redhat and configuring X... hehe.

Damn, that means I'm still a newbie huh... in which I am I think.

[edit]Ok, did a search myself, came up with 116 threads. Not as bad as I thought. Hmmm.. [/edit]

Well, I keep on learning, I learn something new about
Linux every day ... but I guess we're still "kinda advanced"
newbies, though ;)
