So I downloaded all three FC1 iso images, and shared them via NFS. I
verified the md5 sums, and made a CD of disc1, and booted a laptop with
it. I used the askmethod boot option so I could do a graphical NFS
install. Everything was going fine, I specified the IP address of the
server and the directory, the graphical installer launched, I set
partition info, selected the install type, set network config, firewall
config, and timezone config. I don't recall if there was anything else
after timezone config, but I was given an error dialog that said disc4
image wasn't found, and it rebooted.

Thanks Fred, I'll try that. However I do need to monitor routers.
I just thought a first step to see how mrtg works would be to try
the host interfaces.
What is the XF86Config tool named in Fedora?
[root@localhost root]# which XF86Config
/usr/bin/which: no XF86Config in

Or what is the proper way to reconfigure X?
I tried to install the KDE 3.2.2 packages, twice, by downloading the
files from a KDE.org mirror site and installing using the command
rpm -Uvh *.rpm --force --nodeps
I received an error when starting the newly installed KDE. Error
loading kdeinit. Check installation.
Has anyone had this problem and can help me?
Hi, a novice user here, with a simple question. I want to remove the
alert notification tool from my panel (I'll check for updates myself).
When I select 'Remove from Panel' in the configuration wizard it goes.
But next time I login there it is again -annoying. I don't want to
remove the program from my system completely.
How can I remove the blinking icon from my panel for good?
I'm having a problem getting a valid configuration

Configured several yum repos in /etc/rhn/sysconfig/sources.
rhn-applet shows several updates pending.
up2date says "Your system is up to date".
I changed the repos in /etc/rhn/sysconfig/sources
several times but still got "Your system is up to date".
Manually running "yum check-updates" gives the same list
of updates displayed by rhn-applet.
Watching up2date with ethereal reveals that it does a
GET for header.info with an "If-modified-since" header
with a very recent timestamp. When it receives
304 Not Modified, it appears to decide nothing's needed.
Where does up2date cache header.info, and how does it
determine the timestamp to use in the "If-modified-since"?
I suspect my header.info is 'cache poisoned' with a newer
version from a mirror that doesn't yet have the updates.

I'd like to ask if you know something about the ECS G320 notebook's VGA problem because it's now impossible to use it with linux. It's ok with win 'cause it's "Designed for Windows XP" but i'd like to use it with Linux.
The problem appears when the graphical mode starts, so the machine freezes or in some cases I get a funky pictures. !!! But if the driver modul of the integrated VGA doesn't work than I get a beautiful picture and everything is OK except for video playback for example...
If anyone could help me, I'd really appriciate that.
