So I finally figured out my Bios issues and can run linux again. Haven't installed Arch since before the xorg split. I used to do a base install, get it all updated etc, and then do a "pacman -S fluxbox" and let it get everything I needed for X as well. Problem now is that nothing looks like it used to. It said it was downloading xfree86 but everthing in /etc/X11/ looks like it goes with xorg. Going to print out the Wiki stuff regarding installing X and try again tonight, is there a different version of fluxbox that I should be looking for that depends xorg rather than xfree86?
dependancies (compile time and runtime) do not differentiate between xorg and XFree86
both use the X11R6 structure, and have the same library and program names
fluxbox will run on either
I think it should install xorg as default X-server,
there was two versions of fluxbox before, one "stable" and one "devel", I havn't used them myself so I don't know which repo they are located in,
arch + gentoo + initng + python = enlisy
I would pacman -S xorg before installing fluxbox so I knew xorg was installed instead of xfree86.
basically, both xorg and xfree86 fill the same dependency for the wms and such (xserver, I think). However, I'm not certain which one is downloaded by default.
Cool, I hadn't realized that xorg would fill the listed dependancy for xfree86. I try it again tonight, starting with xorg and see how it goes.
Thanks to everyone.

IIRC the arch dependency name is "x-server" but i could be wrong
