Description of problem:
The first time you run linuxconf on a new install, it brings
up a help frame that is way too long for the screen, and it
has _NO_ scrollbar.  So, the only way to get rid of it is to
use obscure windowing tricks (alt-click-drag) to get the 'quit'
button onto the screen so that you can close it.

This is a really painful first impression of an otherwise
wonderful tool.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RH 7.2 clean (full install)
2.run linuxconf in GNOME environment (or x-DISPLAY to another machine)
  (I'm running WindowMaker, but I don't think that has anything to do
   with it.)
3.Wail in horror as the 10,000 pixel high help frame opens up.

Expected Results:  It should have a scroll pane and it should be no larger
than 800x600

Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore

Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
