Hey Doug,

Any particular reason you aren't using  64 bit Fedora?  If it's because of a 32bit app, the chance of it working on x86_64 is *very high* and so worth trying.


May I suggest the 64 bit - the graphics are much faster. 32 bit is glunky for 2/3D and animation.

Well, the reason was that I had the disk. So I listened to the sage advice from the list here, and started to download the file. I have the usual cable connection, and I thought
I'd have the file in 20 minutes or so. The estimate was 4½ hours! I said to go ahead, and then after about 2½ hours I accidentally aborted it. I'll try again late tonite.
I'm downloadeing from fedoraproject.org.
