Please allow the technical-not-so-advanced to ask a may be stupid  
question: Does this mean, if I take the above mentioned disks from Franz,  
that  I can install a Linux with 2.6 Kernel (Fedora Core 2 may be) on  
limited HW and run it?! And can I then use all the many FC2-rpms around to  
install up-to-date-Software? That would be great. During the last weeks I  
felt more and more the pain of running an outdated OS - this reminded me  
of the importance of the rUle-projcet :-) (The capitalized U by intention).

Regards, Ingo.

P.S. I have now some experience in running IP-Telephony Software (ITU  
H323) on rulified systems - will publish this soon. This was the reason,  
for my wish to have a more recent OS, many of the software is no more  
available for 2.4 Kernel or as Redhat9-rpm.
