Thanks Kam.  If you are refering to "make qconfig", thats an error 2, 
no such option in the makefile or some such twaddle.

When I arrived up the hill at the shop, and woke up the monitor(I'd 
left it running when I came down the hill to send the previous msg), 
the screen was trashed, and I had to exit x and restart it to clean 
up the screen (I'm using a blank screen as the screensaver).  Now it 
seems to me the least fussy screensaver is a blank screen, needs 
little of no cpu.  But this is test 3, so...

That machine did pass about 3 full passes of memtest86 nice and 
cleanly.

Next suggestion?  Does a make menuconfig still work?
