hi andrew & everyone -

i'm new :)   i've been undertaking the install for the last couple of days 
when i have some free time.  

the only troubles i ran into were a few package dependencies that are a
bit mismatched with the ones that installed from my FC4 DVD -- i ended up
with two installed versions of vixie-cron, hal, and a couple of other
things (for some reason) which i had to fix with rpm -e.

i actually ended up using the edgecore kernel which seems to be working
OK.  it boots, and i got all the packages installed over the net.  there
are a few notes on FC4 on the website:


the only trouble is, my soundcard isn't working :)  i have a SB AWE64 gold 
ISA card and though the GNOME soundcard detector and alsaconf pick up the 
fact that it's there, i can't seem to get it working properly.  i know 
it's old, but if anybody has any suggestions they'd be welcome...
