Thanks Tomas, I guess I needed to get myself straight as to what I need to
do.  It's just that I see everyone else's screenshots and I see great
backgrounds, colors, Wharf pixmaps and I say to myself 'Why don't I have
that', but I guess I have to work for it.  Well, where are the config files
I need to edit for wharf?  Thanks, later.
