	I'm glad I was helpful. I should note than even though those 
applications seem appealing I highly recommend learning the Unix side of 
things: it can be intimidating at the beginning or maybe even 
overwhelming (as it was for me when I started typing commands) but after 
you get the grasp of the command line it becomes an indispensable tool, 
nothing can replace it because there just aren't as many front ends as 
there are useful commands! Along those lines the "man" command is one of 
the best learning tools but probably used best as quick reference.

	Of course, that's just the point of view of a geek who's more of a 
Unix head than anything. Just my two cents.
