Starting with 5.0 the RedHat people have managed for the distribution
popping up the same day in Europe and USA (don't know about Asia).
That means I should in theory get it next Monday.  It will be the big

Voice and the Introductory Manual and it happens I am curious to have
a look at in order to see what is their idea of an Introductory
Manual: the book in the blue box told about kernel compiling before
how to connect to your ISP.  :-)
