Given the fact that I spent most of Friday night, trying to resolve a
weird problem parent's XP/SP2 machine that rendered it DOA.
Now, I was called to diagnose the problem after my parent's local
computer technician told them to reinstall everything from scratch.

In the end, it was one of MS' recent patches that screwed something in
ZoneAlarm, which in-turn, killed the Internet dialer.

I know it had been said 10,000 times before, but Fedora is bleeding edge
and changing fast, one shouldn't use it unless he/she understand what
bleeding edge means.

Oh, Fedora != RedHat.
