Nice instructables.

Just wanted to mention that at least in my case after the install it does not start on it's own.

You will need to go to Applications|Accessories|Avant Window Navigator to open the dock. If you don't see it in the accessories, then would suggest that you logout, then log back in.

Go back to Applications|Accessories|Avant Window Navigator. The dock should be at the bottom. Right click the dock, select dock preferences. You should have defaulted to the preferences screen. Toward the bottom is Start Awn automatically, check it.

Now close the application and logout. Log back in and you should see your dock in all it's glory.

Thank You for helping! And Thanks For Subscribing to me. One Of My Istructables actually got 900 views. It Was Like My First One. Thanks!! Patrick
