Thanks Void!

I'm feeling positive about the role. Only worry is I have little perl experience; however, I've tumbled with enough shell scripting and programming languages that I could learn pretty quickly.

If so, you may want to try the nv or nouveau drivers. (if available)
Admittedly a shot in the dark but may be worth a crack?

out of curiosity, has anyone else purchased a netbook? any recommendations? I'd like to buy one but I'm not sure where to start with researching them. They're all based around the Intel Atom processor, and the same Intel Chipset so performance-wise they should be on a par. Obviously you need to dec...

Over here the BBC are broadcasting everything live via their Flash v9 based web-video. Unfortunately I think the they only ofer it to UK users. Perhaps you could use a .co.uk proxy? Additionally, maybe you could look into using SopCast (Google it) I know you can use that with linux, I think there is...

On fedora you can get pre-built RPMs for ntfs-3g which is a RW ntfs implementation for FUSE.

I imagine the packages are out there, if not for RHEL specifically then CentOS or WhiteBox clones.
