Sure am! At least it reports the module is there. 
I wish there was a way to presto the doggone filelists dnloads. THAT
would save a pile of time. It's been faster to fire up firefox, hit the
webpage of the everything or update files, copy file location, fire up
wget -c <filename.rpm> to get a single file. Getting past megabyte
filelist information is the killer via a modem. Presto'ing that would be
sweet. Ric
