Hello everyone,

I've just downloaded 1.5b5 and compiled and installed it
ok, spent hours configuring it to my needs. Now I
have realised I haven't installed any of the patches.

If I patch the source code and then re-compile and
install will I lose any of my hard worked config?

Do I have to re-compile at all??!!

Also I am familiar with patch, but is there any considerations
when patching afterstep.

Any help appreciated
