Picked up a boxed RH8 this morning at Fry's, started shoving CDs in the slot, done and running now. I just accepted the defaults for H/W configuration since I have no idea what's inside the box :-) Even the UI (I installed Gnome) seems snappy enough. Only a bit more config (security) to figure out and it'll be ready to go outside the firewall. YMMV, etc., but I'd recommend it :-) -- Hassan Schroeder ----------------------------- hassan at webtuitive.com Webtuitive Design === (+1) 408-938-0567 === http://webtuitive.com dream. code.
