Well, so far so good on the F9 to Rawhide update.  Reboot was fine, the
login prompt screen was real big (as in bigger than usual on a 19"
monitor, as in like 800x600 type size), but logging into gnome was bout
the same as normal (1440x900 or similar), evolution is working lot
better so far, and no problems from firefox really, cept it seems tad
slow at times (more than normal, such as screen to render).
