In effect it means I have to get a load of packages and recompile all of
them. The FC1 packages would be the best source as RHEL 3.0 was modeled
after FC1.

But at present this is more then I would bargain for on the other hand if
no one is able to discover a way to get TVout working on the PVR-350 it
may be the best way to get a steady installation but it would result in a
new repository as almost no one has one for RHEL 3.0
