NB:  In order to create a usable installation I had to install to a pata
drive.

FC4T1 - up and running.  I flipped a coin, grabbed a dvd and installed.  The
warning about post-process was both right and wrong.  Graphical login spun
right up, and I can take root.  I will have to create a standard user later.

Network connectivity verified through lan firewall.

System looks like this:
Gigabyte GA-K8NS motherboard [nForce3 250 chipset]
AMD64 2800+
1.0G DDR400 ram
30G Maxator ide [lost the rest of the documentation]
70G Seagate sata

You recommended yum for update.  I will try it.  I have used apt/synaptic up
to this point.

The installation to this point is Personal Desktop [minimum - except for joe
as text editor of choice.]
