Revision of How to Install the Eternity Screensaver in Ubuntu from Tue, 11/06/2007 - 00:45

<!--adsense-->The Eternity Screensaver plays animations of ray-traced scenes which took days or even weeks to generate. The reasoning is that these clips should look more impressive than anything which can be generated on-the-fly.
