Hmmm .... RedHat was the only linux I'd ever used; and Fedora doesn't seem
so bad if you stay at least one full release number behind; but I admit
I've been wondering about -- say -- whitebox. Any thoughts on that?

The ones I tried with Codeweavers were the same CDs I used under W98 on a
3GB hard drive -- in the same pentium II machine as before, in which I was
running RH9 on two new hard drives of 20 and 30 GB.

I tried on VTLUUG (I'm in the same town as Virginia Tech), with no
response, in May of 2003. I've just modified that slightly and reposted
it. Thanks -- and wish me luck.

But the more expert friends I spoke of were on Novalug (my wife & I have
recently retired from Northern to Western Virginia); I've tried again
there, too -- again without success.

I think I'd better try to find a GPS list that isn't 99 44/100% over my
head; GPS and topo maps don't seem to interest Wine-iacs all that much ...
