I have an odd but hopefully interesting question. I use DSL for a backup anytime for whatever reason I want to access
a computer without booting the OS (or having the OS). Something I find dang nifty using the gui, is the system info overlay right on the
desktop, unobtrusively superimposed as part of the background streaming realtime data. How is this done, can I replicate
this using a gnome desktop?(I didnt figure it out running IceWM, Gnome, or KDE with either Fedora or Mandrake, but I use Gnome on
a Fedora system.) I think it would be kickass to have a few commands streaming output in this manner..................
But anyway, anyone know what app does this, or was it a feature of that particular build of IceWM?
