He's milky white and silky smooth. He's got one name like Potsie or Gollum. He's got all his life to live and all his love to give, he's The Shadowman. And he joins us once again to answer the toughest questions anyone dared ask a two-dimensional logo.
Got a question that you'd like Shadowman to answer? Ask him.
Saroj S sicked up:
The Walker hoofed it on up to the mic and shouted:
rpmbuild --rebuild rhdb-2.src.rpmHe built his own. It put the new binary in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS. He won't support you, but he assured me it worked.
Scott R stood up from his desk and rang out with:

To Karl R., who wanted to know if 8.0 will install on the PS2, Shadowman says: Nope.
To Bill S. and Keith F, who wanted to know about browsing SMB/Samba shares in Linux, Shadowman says: Use Nautilus. smb:// will browse the network and display the shares (you can click the icons to access) or use smb://servername/sharename.
To Micah L, who wanted to know where screen-shooter went, Shadowman says, print screen and alt-printscreen work just fine.
To Mike M, who wanted to know where vnc was in the 8.0 package manager, Shadowman says: It's under System>System tools. As for other "missing" packages, looking in "Details" some packages appear in standard, some in extras, make sure you check both.
To Nigel, who asked if 8.0 supports dual processors, Shadowman says, "And how"
To Borris, who can't boot from CD to install, Shadowman says, use rawrite, dd, or cat to make a floppy from the boot.img file in the images directory of the first install CD.
To Casey P, who was trying to settle a bet, Shadowman says, Dynamic Host Configuration PROTOCOL.
