[vox] re: problem with fedora core 6


I've got a set of FC5 disks that you can have, free
and clear. I don't need them anymore since I upgraded
to 6. Fortunately, my installation went a little more
smoothly then yours did.

If you're interested, shoot me an email and we'll make
plans to meet up this evening if you would like.
