"The fear some people have about working at the command line.....

-Re: mxconfig
Newbies and scripts do not mix well, as they have said many times on this forum.
But maybe all we do is have a description/caution, a download button, and a start button. On clicking the last, they are dropped out of X and off they go and keep hitting Return. That would save them some steps which they are not used to...
This is just a discussion topic ATM."

No the fear comes after sgfxi kills x, and the user reboots to a blank screen with a blinking cursor.
Then they fear working at the command line.

I am not a complete rookie, but that's where the script lead me. I reinstalled Mepis, no problem
There is more than dropping to level 3 and running. sgfxi has lots of options and switches available.
For me running, as I recall, with the -n flag works smoothly. I had to read the instructions. Duh...
