[K12OSN] exchange connector?

I've been using the exchange connector for a few weeks now... has made moving some faculty members from outlook to the new server easy (and keeps me from having to run outlook via Crossover).
I found the rpms from ximian's site to have some strange dependencies. I personally didn't want to install the entire Ximian dist (or a chunk) to make the connector to work. There is are some fc2 rolled connector rpms floating about, and I found one awhile back.

Yup, been using the Exchange Connector now for the last year and a half
(we're a "Microsoft shop"). That means that, back then, yup, I paid the
$59 or $69 for it. It allowed me to switch to GNU/Linux, so I felt that
it was worth it.
I haven't tried it on Fedora Core Anything yet, but I've used it on Red
Hat Linux 7.3 and K12LTSP 3.1.2 (RHL 9), both before and after it went
GPL. Today, I use it with SuSE Linux 9.1. I imagine that it would
operate the same way under FC1 or FC2.
The easiest way that I've discovered to install the Exchange Connector
is to use the Ximian/Novell "Red Carpet" tool. Matter of fact, it's how
I've done it every time, and it's the way that Ximian/Novell recommends
that you do the Connector install.
