What is the name of system monitors (e.g. gkrellm stuff like cpu usage, disk usage, network usage, etc.) that appear to be a part of your desktop? I am looking for an option that uses mostly (or all) text with simple bar meters. I came across a program called conky in the forums. Is this stable on ppc? What other options do I have? What is the best option for FVWM on ppc?

Conky will run quite happily on PPC.
Code:
echo app-admin/conky >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
emerge conky
