I didn't see the post on these. Is there a URL where I can get these

I'm thinking of ways I could get the most important (to me anyway)
things working. I'm talking multimedia players like MPlayer, Ogle and
Flash, various games like FooBilliard and kid's stuff like Tux Paint and
Tux Math. Of course, having apt and synaptic built against RPM 4.3 would
help too.

I'll probably reload again today or tomorrow once things in rawhide have
had a chance to "simmer" a little more. Of note, I had my students in my
Linux class install FC2 last Friday (I teach a beginner's Linux sysadmin
class at DeVry University). I gave them the CDs and said, "Go for it."
They learned a lot, so I'm going to have them continue testing as part
of the learning experience.
