Apt and apt front-ends

As mentioned in the CV50 configuration section ([*]), some programs will use incorrectly sized fonts, or will even crash, if the XFree86 is given correct screen dimensions. Chief among those programs is `synaptic'. I ended up using aptitude instead. `Aptitude' is a console-based menu-style fronted to apt. No native RPMs exist for SuSE 9.1 at the time of writing, but I used an RPM from designed for Fedora Core 2 (FC2).
