Since, as I understand it, I'm not allowed to share a license of flash, I
don't see how I can install it on a multi-user machine. What's anyone else
What are people using as an alternative?
"The picture I get of Microsoft when I read articles like this, is that of a

right away. However eventually this child grows up and learns that he has no

a short progress report on my travels this far, getting vmware
workstation up and running on FC1. no, i'm not done but i thought i'd
share if anyone else wanted to try this.
starting with the newest vmware WS 4.0.5, on a system running kernel
2.6.0-test10, first, following the instructions, i made sure that the
* RTC support
* parallel port support as a *module*
next, install the WS rpm, and edit /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl, and,
because of 2.6 kernel, "/proc/ksyms" -> "/proc/kallsyms".
in addition, because of 2.6 kernel, download a tarball of vmware
updates: http://ftp.cvut.cz/vmware/vmware-any-any-update43.tar.gz, unload
and run "runme.pl", which will do a little patching and ask if you want to
continue on and run "vmware-config.pl", which i did.
that's as far as i got right now, but it's worth noting that i didn't
have to hack any more than this. no other changes to
/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl, and no need to change the CC variable to use
the older compiler.
so, as soon as i pull a copy of win2k out of storage, it's on to
thoughts? further advice?

Has anyone had the same issue? Any suggestions for resolving?
I was getting a cdrecord error 255 using k3b, so I brought down one of my backups of cdrecord, this version
[root@localhost bin]# cdrecord --version
Cdrecord-ProDVD-Clone 2.0.1 (i586-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jrg Schilling
And everything works fine. The Fedora version was
[root@localhost root]# cdrecord --version
Cdrecord-Clone 2.01a19 (i686-redhat-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2003 Jrg Schilling
Fedora has an experimental version, which does not work. I kept getting a cdrecord error 255 and a buffer underrun
error. This should be fixed quickly, since cdrecord is used by everything. I have posted a number of messages on
various sites asking about this. I found out why.

I just finished installing Fedora Core 1 on an old Digital PC 5400 (200
MHz Pentium Pro from back in the pre-DIMM days). The computer came with
Windows NT, but I fetched what files were of interest to me and did a
clean install, giving the whole 8.something Gbyte hard drive over to
Linux (it has the latest BIOS I can find for it, which claims to support
8.something Gbyte hard drives)..
On the computer I had installed a Sony SuperStation (which I have read
elsewhere is a big mistake, but that's probably not important right now)
and a Zoom modem--I am pretty sure it is not a Windows-only modem, since
I made a point of avoiding them in anticipation of a move to Linux. The
Fedora installation apparently detected it, because when I did the
reboot after the install, the screen showing the details of booting came
up and said that I'd removed a "generic serial modem," and did I want to
remove the configuration? I said yes. I have no reason to doubt that it
did so, but firing up the Hardware Browser shows that it sees a "Zoom
V90 Internal Faxmodem Unknown".
This computer is planned to go to a friend who could use it, and she'll
need dialup capabilities. How should I proceed from this point to get
the modem recognized and usable? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
