    Re: The GNOME Situation.

    I tried GNOME 3 when I was running Arch, didn't like it, and switched to Xfce.

    So if I can't have GNOME 2, I'll just use Xfce and be happy. :D

    I ran into that last night, and yeah, I was fooled! :eek2:

    Gotta say whoever put it together did an excellent job.

    Interesting concept, though. Not sure if it would be good or bad.

    Re: The Penguin Bar

    CentOS-5 and Ubuntu-8.04 both worked out well for me, so I setup a dual boot system. This gives me a little bit of backup, and it was fun, too. :D

    I was just taking a look at the first CentOS-5.2 CD, and noticed that there is no 'yum-fastestmirror' package. And this seems to be a dependency for the new 'yum' package.

    Does the Ubuntu install CD have a 'Rescue Mode' or something similar? Then maybe you could mount the file system and reconfigure xorg.conf.

    You don't need to chmod the jpgs to 777. 644 will do.

    Is the DocumentRoot owned by root? That may not be a good idea. Why not create a virtual host under a regular username?
