it's not as if I couldn't install in many other ways,
nfs/http/yum_upgrade but I didn't see any work arounds suggested either.

I don't need to have F11-Beta installed on this Aspire One...I was
thinking that I could see if xorg fixed virtual scrolling as suggested
here...

 http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xorg/2009-March/044290.html

where Alex says "Virtual desktop scrolling got dropped when xrandr 1.2
support was added to the driver.  It has since been re-added, but
requires xserver 1.6 and xrandr 1.3."

because it's hard to use 1024x600 without some extra virtual screen but
I don't know that those versions are in F11-Beta anyway and thought if I
went for the Beta, I could provide other feedback (and if necessary, beg
for these updates).

Thanks Paul, I should have looked in Bugzilla...
