Well, that's a possibility. If svga abuse ever gets working again, I'll
consider doing that.

Don't bother. Redhat removed abuse from their distribution after version
3.0.3. From other messages in this thread, it seems that 3.0.3 was the last
redhat release to have a 1.2 kernel in it, so I'd guess abuse stopped
working after that, and they removed it.

I haven't gotten any mail back yet. I have a feeling Crack is working on
other things and doesn't want to spare time for abuse any more. Which is a
