I went for broke, as I posted earlier in the week, and installed the FC6
bind rpms and the system-setup* rpms and this crate runs smooth. I would
hazard a guess that any one with weirdness going on, on their network,
network printers, file sharing, you name it, might be in those packages.
I notice that it tried to update you from 30:9.3.2-20 and it would have
taken you to 2-35 I think it was. That's where it went to Hell. I'm
using 2.41 from FC6 and it's great. No more strange stuff in hosts,
either. All weirdness gone. Ric
