macondo,
You need to enable the 'untested' repository.  You may need to add the url to it.

SOURCE=http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.1/x86_64 (for 64-bit)
and then slapt-get -u; slapt-get -i ratpoison

wigums: maybe i was a little too general in my assesment.

alt-tab works.
keybindings, fine
sound and video, fine
the rest of the apps, fine
that's all,folks, as you were, soldiers.
