I would, **If they had slider buttons on them**!!!!
I installed the Krystal skin, so I could see the gui well enough, and opened 
video settings.  All I see is 4 vertical columns, with no way that I can see

That makes me wonder if maybe I have a problem with my video driver, since I 
can't adjust brightness in either totem or xine...?
