	For packages that don't use debconf, you just run
"sudo dpkg-reconfigure <packagename>"

	(I use sudo rather than an 'su -' session for all my rooty
needs, and YOU SHOULD TOO!  Just apt-get install sudo and run
"visudo".  Copy the entry for root to the next line and put your
username in.  sudo fever!)
