Windows 95 Interface to Linux 
		-------------------------------
	
	FVWM95 gives the Windows 95 interface to Linux, which includes task 
	bar and exact look and feel of win 95. It is extremely user friendly.

	o For home page of Fvwm-95, point your browser to 
		http://ltiwww.epfl.ch/~barth
		and click on Fvwm95.html

	o You can ftp it from ftp://mitac11.uia.ac.be/pub:

	fvwm95-2.0.42a-Autoconf.tgz - this is the last version using GNU
	autoconfigure.
	fvwm95-2.0.41f-to-2.0.42a-Autoconf.diff.gz - the corresponding
	diff file relative to the previous version, if you prefer it.

	fvwm95-2.0.42a-Imake.tgz - this is the same version with the old
	Imake.
	fvwm95-2.0.41f-to-2.0.42a-Imake.diff.gz - the diff file.

	o You should have version.h. To make /usr/include/linux/version.h
		cd /usr/src/linux make include/linux/version.h

	o Follow instructions in README in fvwm*.tgz. Install in the directory
	/usr/local/bin.

	o Edit ~/.fvwm2rc95 and add /usr/local/lib/X11/fvwm95-2/ to Modulepath
	variable.
	  ModulePath /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fvwm95-2/:/usr/local/lib/X11/fvwm95-2/

	o Edit ~/.xsession and put full path to fvwm95
	  exec /usr/local/bin/fvwm95-2
	  Comment out existing window managers.

	o Bring window by giving 'startx'. 
	
	o To bringup Looking Glass (caldera interface), bring up a xterm and
	  give - '/usr/bin/lg'. See man lg. You can put this in the launch 
	  pad.

   	o To shutdown xdm (X manager) - use
   		Linux : ps ax  | grep xdm 
		Note the pid  and give 
			kill -15 < xdm PID process ID>
		(OR) 
		press CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE keys to shut down X
