Default Re: FYI: New RH Kernel RPMs out

I am sorry, but as a Windows 2000 administrator, we could not deploy this OS on the desktop and maintain the OS and drivers as easily as WIN2k.

On the other hand, I am learning a lot about Linux and being challenged to find solutions.
Well, You only need the NVidia drivers for 3D stuff so unless you have an office full of gamers, I don't see the problem. Having said that, I'm having trouble rebuilding the source rpms on the new RH kernel. I've built these for years and haven't had a problem till now so it isn't a newbie error. Getting all sorts of compile errors. Is anyone else having this problem?
