I'm sure it wouldn't either. Like I said the NT install is updated to the
current service pac as is the version of ie installed.  It has just become sort
of a challenge at this point.  I think it can work, if stripped down of a lot of
excess baggage that has come into all distributions, linux or windows. I was
just surpised that a minimal install wasn't possible with fedora. Someone
earlier mentioned the rule-project. It is quite interesting.
