Speaking of useful perl module's, I have been using the Newt.pm module for 
a while, and have patched several times.  Unfortunately, my PAUSE account
is not updated, so I have not been able to get thing back to CPAN (and
the original author as gone away...).  Anyway, this thing allows one to 
use libnewt in perl, and the one below:

	http://lee.k12.nc.us/~joden/misc/patches/perl-Newt/perl-Newt-1.10-0.prototype.src.rpm 

works against RH 9 and 7.3 with know problems.  It would be cool to see 
this in some RH release.  I know most people are doing the gui thing, but 
some of us do serial port based console's on our machines and a nice perl 
library to hook into the libnewt stuff is quite nice.

Cheers...james
