No, the xset force off does not turn the monitor off, but it does blank 
the screen as if it were in perhaps suspend mode.  The card is an ATI 
X600 card with the ATI drivers installed.  It also has an ATI Mach 64 
card in it that has the same behavior.  The cable is OK, as is the 
monitor since it works on other machines that support energy savings 

As for the libs, I was just surprised that a lib as common as termcap 
did not get put in from the CD's as part of the base installation.  Not 
a big deal, but it sure makes compiling things tough when it can't find 
them and you assume all the common libs are installed.  I'm not sure if 
this is the first time or 2nd time that has happened since I did the 
original install on one drive, the replaced it with a larger drive.  
Either way, just thought I'd ask and let somebody know that perhaps its 
not being picked up on initial install
