i found that even though i had X on my box and using it...i always opened a command prompt window to do all my configuration.

I found that you can jump around *nix systems easier when have done stuff through command line....plus it makes for a smaller install.

another thing is i totally install every thing from source.
UNLESS the software i want to use is only available through rpm or if there is lots and lots of extract crap that i need to install and if that is the case i just run my up2date app and it downloads the necessary dependencies/files....

plus i find it easier to work command line anyway....i use to do everything from X years back....like redhat 5.1 days but ive come along way so there is no need for X anymore......
