Oh ok.. I didn't know that... the whichcd package I'm
talking about above lists many distributions (not just
FC releases). I've used that package for a while since
I tend to run different flavours of Linux and easily
install it on all my machines, but yeah, if FC2 has it
already then why not use it :) .. just note the
difference being (from the whichcd rpm description):

A script that determines which CD of a Linux
distribution a given package can be found on. The
script 'whichcd' takes package names as arguments.
Multiple arguments may be given. "whichcd" knows about
Red Hat Linux, Fedora Core, Mandrake Linux, and White
Box Enterprise Linux.

Michael.
