You will have better response if you subscribe and post to the ale list,
rather then the ale-admin list. The ale-admin list is for adminstrative
issues regarding the ALE organization, email lists and web site.
I'll forward your email to the ale list, and those who might assist will
need to respond to you as well as the list. I've made a few suggestions

I assume this is when you're attempting to set up the X windowing
system? You'll need to provide more information, like the kind of video

Yes, this is something you might get help with at a meeting. We did a
SuSE install at the ALE-NW meeting a couple of months ago.
Subscribe to the list and 'listen' for further suggestions. Also, you
might want to post more info regarding your system as I outlined above.

I didn't have to buy my radio from a specific company to listen
to FM, why doesn't that apply to the Internet (anymore...)?
