Well, that's what I assumed, too. Without reinstalling I can't be completely sure but I'm *pretty* sure that it wasn't there. Could this be a KDE vs. Gnome thing? This is the KDE specific Fedora package. Or a Live vs. full install? A lot is left off the Live install, so maybe that's it?

After installing on a USB drive and booting the system, I opened the "Web Browser" and up came Konqueror. I wanted Firefox so ran "yum install firefox" and it didn't say anything about it already being installed (and the yum log says it was installed -- not updated -- on June 3, when I did that). Yum installed 3.5 beta 4, by the way. Likewise, Thunderbird wasn't present until I installed it manually.

Anyway, I assume by your response that it WILL be included on the package you make, so no worries and sorry to bother you. Thanks for your time and effort. It is much appreciated.
