I mentioned in a previous posting that I could not get FC2 to install on
my laptop (due to a problem with the pcmcia slot) so I had to re-install
RH9. I'm still using a 2.4 kernel. I'm afraid to try to install FC3. It's
a lot of work to have to re-install RH9 after FC3 (likely) fails to handle
the pcmcia slot.
