OK, I was just going by the following statement in their docs:

"Fedora Core 5 does not include the kernel-source package provided by  
older versions, instead, configured sources are available as  

They go on to describe a nine-step process complete with 3 black-box  

Why is is so complicated, it used to be just install one package, one  
step, and the package was included. What was wrong with that, unless  
for some reason they just want to make it difficult.

Anyway, if somebody can tell me what video card to purchase that will  
run the software I want to run (which is all open source BTW), with  
an open-source driver, I will order it tomorrow.

And let's end this thread, it's got way too OT :-)
