Thanks Andy,

Now that's an answer that I appreciate, it has an explanation with meat.
I now have a better sense and feeling to Fedora.

Would you know when the next release might be? I do hope it will be
before April 2004 just when Red Hat finishes with RH9? Isn't timing
great. That's when I will/should make my move/upgrade after the kinks
have been ironed out with FC1 and possibly the starting of FC2, as there
may be an enormous demand for downloads. Hope there will be no funny
stuff that you need to FC1 or its' dependencies to upgrade to FC2.

As they say ...
