Quick Questions about Slackware 10.0

I upgrade to slackware 10.0 using swaret and I noticed two things. I have read that xorg was gonna be used instead of XFree86 but for some reason when I do "startx", it is using the XF86Config file and therefore XFree86. I have also noticed that when I start a console I don't get the user@host prompt but instead I get bash2.0.5# and I don't like that. And last, the full install is using 5+ GB of HD space. (I don't have any personal files). Can someone tell me if this is ok?

For the bash prompt prob do :
echo "source /etc/profile" >> ~/.bashrc

For xfree vs xorg, simply install xorg packages and remove xfree

Try this reggae prompt :
export PS1="\[\033[1;32m\]\u\[\033[1;33m\]@\[\033[1;31m\]\h\[\033[0;39m\]:\w\\$
