I'm running VNC (pre-installed) with FC3. My client/view is on Windows 2000.
To configure VNC I modified /etc/sysconfig/vncservers
And set a password. Then started the service "service vncserver start"
Starts up fine, and I can connect with my viewer to port 5901.
I'm new to Linux, so I'm confused about what desktop I am seeing. I
know with VNC server on a windows server, you get the display that the
local mouse/keyboard/monitor sees. There's only one desktop.
With FC3, I seem to be getting a new virtual desktop. I guess that
would be useful to run X applications. But is there a way to use VNC
to display the exact same thing that my locally attached
keyboard/mouse/monitor see? So if I change something remotely using
VNC, the local monitor also displays my changes. Just as if I was at
In http://www.python.org/2.4/rpms.html there are RPM packages for FC3,
and a Yum repository provided by python.org (hey! so far FC3 is the only
distro with RPMs provided by python.org itself!)
I'd like to know if anybody have installed these packages, and if they
fit pleasently into FC3. As Fedora uses Python *heavely*, I don't want
to break anything.
So, it's safe to install this, or I'd be better waiting for an official
update? (assuming there are plans for such an update...)
I can't understand the behavior of kudzu in respect to my serial
modem. After initial installation it detects the modem but after that
it is ignored. What I mean is I can remove the modem and kudzu ignores
the change, or I can remove the modem from the kudzu database and
kudzu ignores the change. I can run: kudzu --class MODEM and kudzu
will remove all my hardware from its database except the MOUSE but it
still ignores the modem.
How can I get kudzu to notice that I have changed, removed or added

Does everyone here agree that a 500watt power supply is sufficient
enough for a dual MP 1800 board with 4 hard disks, DVDrom, cdrw,
dvdrw, and plenty of self powered usb hubs? I'm trying to figure out
whats up with my computer and my next stop is to call an electrician.
Hello everyone. I have a problem I was hoping someone could help me
with. When I try to boot my Fedora CD I get this message
ISOLINUX 2.06 2003-08-22 isolinux: disk error 01, AX = 4293, 9F
I have no idea what it means or what to do. Any help that someone could
give me would be appreciated.

I looked at your IP to see what kind of router you had.
It appears to be supplied by your ISP, because telnet showed:
Sawtooth Technologies, LLC Stevenson, WA Unauthorized Access is Prohibited

Sawtooth Technologies Ether 188.8.131.52 PL/DHGL/109201/ELG 184.108.40.206
So you may need to call them to get the password or to forward port 22
I think that more people mould move away from WIndows if they read the notices
on the microsoft website:

on earth would people use such an OS?
