I haven't heard...? HAH! ;D I have been livin' with RH for over 5 years
and oh, I love that one directory where is everything.rpm I need. :) I'd
rather do a script that parses the output of that directory to look and
feel the way I like the best, than "cd there; cd here; cd idontknowwhere".
Anyhow, now I am too bored to use ready build distros, 'cause those are
much too disordered even for me. ;) I am dumping those and right now
at the moment, building LFS... I wan't _real security_ and that the system
is fuctioning the way I like.
