Hello, Mike.  Oh yes, the changing of the XF86Config-4 setting worked.  

I'm not too clear about the installing of SMP manually.  Well, quite frankly, 
I just don't know enough about it.  Without making you write an entire 
instruction manual, are there some steps I sould be aware of if I was to try 
and help my co-worker install Compact 2.3 on his system?

Thanks for the help.  WindowMaker looks much better now.  :o)

Theoretically yes (it has SMP kernel) but practically I've seen
problems like you had to install SMP kernel and module packages
manually.  *sigh* since it's obviously a bug.

Regarding colours, you can try to modify the aforementioned
setting and restart X (sorry for being so config-oriented, I'm
just too dumb regarding the rest of the tools that's available
and when I know the config, it's more reliable to work out an
"edit this"-like advice rather than figuring out what's working
and what's broken).
