	Stuff that doesn't come with the FC6 DVD.  I listed some in a previous
message but to recap; Borland C++ Builder, ISE Eiffel, Firefox plugins,
VMware, Applix, etc.

	Oh, I don't know.  Let's see...  Hey, I got an idea.  Since this is the
Fedora Linux list maybe I could run FC6 on it.  Why didn't I think of that?

	Ok, ok.  All kidding aside I should have been more explicate in my
original post.

	I tend to use laptops as desktops.  I never actually turn them off let
alone suspend them.

	Host OS requirements would be whatever FC6 needed.  But it's likely
that I don't have to much to fear.  Thanks alan.
