Thanks for your responses!
Any reason why you're still using version 2?
When I installed Fendora , I simply went down to the public library and checked out Fendora Bible
that included Fendora 14 , so that is what I'm using now ( I sure this is outdated now! ). I've noticed that there is a 64-bit version of Fendora available. Is the software availability between the Fendora-32 and 64-bit versions the same? I might try this next time Fendora needs an install ....
