     Thank you for your help.  AfterStep 1.7.142 was installed along with 
everything else from the install CD.  I used rpm -e, and it seemed to 
uninstall everything OK, but then at the end it said "cannot remove 
/usr/X11R6/share/afterstep/start and /usr/X11R6/share/afterstep: directory 
not empty".  When I typed startx I got an error message saying "~/.xinitrc: 
exec: afterstep: not found".  Now I have no AfterStep at all.
