	Hmmm ... I'm used to doing such things from Synaptic, PackageKit, 
Pirut of old memory, or other GUI that gives me lists to choose from. I 
don't know most of the names I want rid of till I see them. I know that 
ssh -X or -Y exists, but haven't used it much ... 

	Otoh, I *like* the way your mind works, SIR.

	One more clue, please? Like a tutorial site somewhere? I tend to 
have trouble just with scp inside my LAN (though plain ssh usually works).
