I'll have to second that motion myself, jigdo pulled the 64 bit F8 in just a 
few hours, where bittorrent might still be working on it.  And its updating 
the install plus putting in kde right now on my lappy.  Looks good so far, 
feels good so far (even if it is gnome with all its nagging housewife crap, 
it won't even let you sudo cuz gene is not in the list of sudoers, gotta fix 
that bs!)

So how do you edit that list if it takes root to do it?

Cheers, Gene
