If I'm going to have to do this much work I'm going back to a real Linux
distro... Slackware! I like the concept of package management, but I
hate lockin whatsoever, and it kind of looks like that's what RH is

primitive... oh well... my heart lies with Slackware anyway. Thanks
(everyone) for your responses!
