Well, there is just me, some dummy users like amanda for the backup proggy, 
and root.  I made an account for the missus, but she is 'computer illiterate' 
in the classic Joe Sixpack mold and has only sat in this chair 2 or 3 times 
in 15 years.  Humm, no wonder the chair is getting lumpy...

Like I said, there is just me, and this box is a swiss army knife, it all has 
to work.  Some isn't, selinux is getting in the way of most of the ogg/theora 
related stuffs and while I've done as setroubleshoot says I should do, it is 
still failing with the same identical failure messages when I hit this site:

<http://ed-tharp.kicks-ass.org/ridingmower.mpg>

Why it needs all the ogg/theora stuff for what is labeled as an .mpg I have 
NDI.  And I'm haunting the selinux list for answers.

I did get my audio probs fixed I think, there was still an alsa-pulse package 
installed.

Thanks John.
