Excellent advice. I am still running FC1 because of all the stability issues
with FC2 and the ivtv drivers. No problems running the latest CVS so
compatibilty is not yet an issue. I suppose I will upgrade sometime next
year after the bugs are all worked out of FC2/3.

BTW - The mondorescue install CD make installing mondo a beeeze now.
