Oh .. great... I'll have a go at that at the same time as some basic=20
routing ideas. =20

I know that I should remove anything that shouldn't be in there.  =20
BUT ....  having read the manual about package management I can see=20
that I'm really not sure how to view a complete list of packages. =20
And ... if I could I'm sure that the list would just scroll of the=20
screen without giving me a chance of reading anything more than a=20
small part of the packages list.

Any way round that one ?  And .. how do I delete the packages that I=20
don't want ?
