	Useful link there. I have another slow machine coming in in a little 
while (then going out again really soon). If the hard drive is bigger 
then I will absolutely include some of those apps.

	In the meantime I have to figure out how to get the sound running on 
the FreeBSD box to do any of the multimedia stuff on the page. A lot of 
the other apps require Gnome to be installed. Can it be done in 700 MB 
on the hard drive? I'll look at Gnumeric. I think that may be the one 
for the demo.
