Feisty guide updated to v1.2

I’ve made a few small additions and corrections to the Feisty guide, and there’s a v1.2 available now.

The main additions were the mention of the xtoolwait package, which allows the X environment to load serially, rather than bombarding your processor with the entire graphical startup at once. Some older machines might see an improvement with that.

I also adopted a few suggestions that were e-mailed to me, all specific to the GUI — lowering the color depth, using less intensive GUI themes and relying on xsetroot instead of another utility to set the root window color.

Aside from that, there’s not much that has changed, which is really how it should be. ;)
