Hi George. Fun isn't it. When you bootup, and get the GRUB menu, which FC is
it booting? FC5, or FC6. this will tell you whether it's FC5's, or FC6's
GRUB.

Well, I am inserting the install cd's and it very quickly gets to the
part where you install the image, but it realizes that everything is
already there and kindly asks me if I would like to add any OS's to
the boot loader, so I add the one that is not there. If I select the
added OS, it gives me GRUB. If I choose the one it put there, that is
the OS I get. It's like the long version of a boot disk :=[  The
strange thing is the mixing of the file system. On the desktop icon
for computer, network, file system....when I am in fc5 and click on
the file system icon, I get just what you expect, bin, boot, etc...but
the strange thing is the very 1st folder is named "1". When I click on
1, I get another set of folders bin, boot, etc... but dev is empty and
bin is full, but all the folders are different from any folder I've
ever seen before---they are blue diamonds...no, I have not smoked
anything. Then my xmms was already setup and I could load all my tunes
from my other file system. Xine worked as always in fc5, but in fc6
video was fine but no sound, I have onboard sound and I put a sound
blaster in it as well. I did quite a bit of knuckle scraping with this
until I found the new sound default system. I didn't have to set it
for xmms, but I did for xine? I am going to be semi-content for awhile
going back and forth, but I'm going to find some reading on Grub and
install 20 distro's just for spite.
