Using fvwm2 on Solaris 10

Since I don't like CDE, and the Java Desktop runs painfully slow and looks ugly on my Ultra5; I decided to install fvwm2. I found this site that makes adding fvwm2 fairly painless.


Firefox still runs in it, but looks ugly because of the lack of colors. I thought I could get 16bit colors, but I haven't figured it out yet.

I'm debating making it a lab Jumpstart server since it has a 40GB drive. You could argue that I should junk my Ultra5 and it's just a waste of time. It's definitely not worth running as a workstation, since I can easily run VMware Server on my laptop if I want a Unix OS.
