yea i have tried some of the console browsers out but i cant get on with 
them very well, plus i need a graphical one so that i am able to see if 
say a picture isnt working on one of the sites... then look at the 
source and check why, so its mainly for a little bit of web editing.

Thats why i thought a small window manager might be needed, oh and i 
guess i would need a browser for it as well... didnt think of that one :(

I will have a look at them URL's you sent, and check to see which is 
most compatible with the bits i got.

oh also what is meant by the "production release" and the "new 
technology release" is there alot of difference?, other than the obvious 
version numbers..
