Well... as a current RedHat user for work purposes and debain for home I can
say RPM is brain dead in where the files come from. It would be better
compaired to dpkg I think in that it doesn't keep track of where the rpms
come from and you have to manually tell it where they are. Also RedHat 7.0
beta is supposed to be 2 CD's so that is going to get intresting..  almost
tempted to download the ISO and test it...
