    I don't think you need much space. What's the output of
    df -h

    Why? Any errors?

    Well actually, I think I going the wrong way with this...

    I'm use to strait too the point installation both in Windows & Mac OS and I feel completely overwhelmed by the Linux way to install a theme :-S

    So, let me start over from the beginning.

    I'm on Xandros Linux and I want to make it look like I'm in a Mac...

    - Do I need to change it to Ubuntu?
    - Does Garnome require me to have Gnome installed before?
    - Let say I'm your mom and I want to do just that... Would you be able to give me a step-by-step description of the detailed procedure?

    Think of me as someone more use to double clicking on a setup or Install icon then entering command prompt all over the system... I can understand the principals (I use to go and play in the autoexec to make my old PC games work in the 90's).

    I figured out they wanted me to change the word "package" in the first line, the "cd package" thing was quite obvious since it works like the ms-dos "cd" command... But I don't have a clue what to do with that ./configure thing!

    So... Is there hope for me :confused:
