Oh, I thought we'd just magic the file system across.

Anyway, I dug up a 'top' for DU (the latest version of the one on the 
freeware CD) and got that working. Also the latest gcc installed.

The main reason I'm setting up gcc is because quite a lot of programs are 
broken and won't compile without it. I haven't installed findutils, but 
the fileutils like 'du' and 'install' are in /usr/local/bin. They're the 
GNU versions - the DU ones are in their old places.
