And that was one of the reasons I called the 6502 a drain bamaged cpu.

Now, while I'm here, let me change the subject.  I've been unable to 
download more than about the first 123k of 
openssl096b-0.9.6-18.i386.rpm from the updates site here in the us 
that yum uses.  I've also tried it with mozilla-1.7rc1, which also 
hangs at about that same point.

I've got several things that won't run because they cannot 
find /usr/lib/libssl.so.2 from that package.

Do I have a problem, or is the file itself defective on that 
fedora-redhat.com site?  In which case where else might I look for 


Cheers, Gene
