If you are talking about installing Maple 12 in Fedora 10 then you do not
need any hacks or changes of any kind - just run the CD direct and it will
install without any fuzz or bother - any hacks needed for ancient now
obsolete versions of Fedora do not apply to Fedora 10 with Maple 12. It just
works "out of the box" (or out of the CD) !
