   This is not CCRMA specific but may help in your decision to upgrade to  
Fedora core 5;
 from what I can tell the developers dropped support for the 'Win 98' smb  
format, meaning you
can no longer transfer files to windows 98, ME vintage systems. I've kept  
one machine on my
local network at FC-4, rsync files to that machine and thence onward to  
users' Win 98 machines
but the irony of being forced, by an Open Source decision, to ditch  
perfectly good systems and
having to purchase XP licences, is delicious.  Cheers !
