That is a thought I suppose, but between 2 different distro's?  Sounds a 
little dicey.

OTOH, that would be a nice idea as it would be the quickest, dirtiest way I 
could think of to get amanda rebuilt for 64 bit since it is always buil;t and 
installed from amanda's home dir.

Since no one has suggested a fix for the 64 bit F12 fedora being so slow, I 
have another 64 bit torrent running right now, to see if that one is 50x 
slower than this F10 32 bit install is now.
