Thanks William!
I do feel a little "dense" for not spotting that! :o\

Yep, Gnome's installed. (I usually start it with "startx" from the
console)It's working as I thought it would now.

Should I be concerned about-
>xrdb: No such file or directory<
>xrdb: can't open file '/home/chris/.Xresources'<
??

Thanks again.
