   Gee...  I vote the other way. :-)  RH 6.0 has the new kernel, and the
new Samba.  I know...  Networking isn't a concern in France. ;-)  But it
is big in the home here, and so is file sharing over the internet.  I
have an NT WINS server here at work, and a lot of my friends point at it
from home so they can file share with each other over the internet.
   I think we should rebuild for 6.0 as soon as possible, but still call
it a beta until we have a chance to bang on it, and finish docs for
6.0.1 instead of 5.2.1...  Integrating all our changes will take long
enough to find the biggest bugs anyway.

   As for people who don't have 6.0, I downloaded the iso from
light-brigade (thanks) and will burn for all who request.  Just cover my
media, and shipping...
