As I mentioned previously and to clarify here, this is the third machine 
that I've had to setup/move to F18
  - the first was a fresh install on x64 Dell Latitude D630; since only one 
disk needed to be partitioned (there is a problem if more than one), so 
the install went flawlessly.
  - the second was an i386 Dell Inspiron 600m; fedup worked flawlessly
  - this third one, a home-build dual-core,failed consistently using fedup, 
and failed on a fresh install (the more than one disk issue).

However, the frustration comes more into play, seeing that in F18 PostGIS 
1.5 is distributed along with PostgreSQL 9.2. If you look at the PostGIS 
Wiki, it says that two will not work together.

Enough from me on this.

Can you tell me how to gussie-up my Xfce panels; or do I need to learn how 
to use google?
