Well you are having better luck with Fedora Core 1 than I have had. On
three different boxes I've yet to see it run for more than about 5 days
before it hoses up or crashed. Yet RH 7.x, 8.0, 9 and RHEL 3.0 works
perfectly on those same boxes for as long as I want to allow it to run.
Go figure...
The instructions said to use Windows 98 or better, so I installed RedHat
