Sorry your highness, for not remembering.

If disk space is the problem have you tried to use Opera?

And if performance is a problem you should chuck any RedHat distribution and
go with Slackware. There you will also have the flexibility to install any
window manager you feel like.

I use fvwm2 myself and glibc-2.2 from Slackware 8.1 on an AMD K6-2 machine as
my terminal, so I am not sure it is because you have limited machine power but
perhaps haven't investigated your possibilities right?

Or do I sense that someone going with RedHat since then aren't up to such a

isn't anymore the Open Group that does it, it is XFree86. Take a look at:

but there is a _lot_ that will replace the Netscape 4.* browser.
