[ltp] Modem on A22p with RH 8.0

Bluecurve is the name for their new common "theme" for both KDE and
Gnome. It involves a set of (ugly IMO) icons, placement of said icons,
and on the gnome side a window frame and GTK theme, plus a nautilus
theme. Essentially you pick Gnome or KDE and use Bluecurve in either
one, they don't have a 'clean' gnome/KDE install in the distribution.
I found that I like the new Gnome but I did not like RedHat's ugly icons
and themes so I am manually changing various look-and-feel things back
to how they should be. I head KDE people are complaining along the same
And on the topic of the modem... Thank you to the person who posted
"modemmadness.txt" -- I may be able to get a working modem on my 600E
Also, I booted into Windows and ran the IBM config utility and disabled
Trackpoint, my system boots fine every time now since it no longer
checks that device I guess. So thank you to whoever suggested I do that
(I assumed it would not go BIOS-level). Why couldn't they have just
included the ability to disable trackpoint in the BIOS configuration? I
can hold off on repairs now and use a PS/2 mouse until I have more money

It looks like the Bluewave(?) interface that comes with Red Hat 8.0 has
its own package handler. Also GnoRPM does come with Red Hat 8.0. Also
you can use Gnome, KDE or the Bluewave interface.
