Home v2.0 is an improvement on the original Home edition, it is slighly larger than the original (600MB) but as you can see it includes all the software you would expect from a well rounded distribution. Remember to run "magic" to keep it up to date!
To login as root, open "konsole" (from the KDE > System menu) then type "su -" then enter the root password.
You can use your Xpad to control your mouse cursor and an onscreen keyboard (xvkbd) to type. However, it also support usb hardware. If you find your cursor drifting, unplug your Xpad, then plug it back in - this should recalibrate it.
If you upgrade Xfree to the latest version (using emerge sync && emerge -up xfree) you will need to run xbvset to reinstall the configs and drivers!
Another improvement in Home v2 is that an XVKBD shortcut has been added to the KDE menu (under Utilities). This means that if you close the keyboard by accident, you can always get it loaded again without having to hard reboot your xbox (dangerous). There is also an icon for Peeper in the same place.
