    Linux Redhat 7.3 $60.00, down from $200

    It came from a Russian ISP. Anyone who knows anything about linux or
    Redhat will see the humor in this. The funny thing was, all the
    software listed for sale was for Windows.

    Only open it if it says RedHat Fedora 4. They will send it for free in
    envelopes nicely and affectionally sealed with hearts:

    http://home.nc.rr.com/netsink/Fedora4.jpg

    I just installed from them. The only problem is that the disks are
    mislabeled -

    The 1st disk on the left says in feminine script "It might be disk 4",
    while I determined and marked it myself as "#2" (on the right).

    The one in the middle says "Seems it's disk 1", but it is #3.

    The one on the right says "Perhaps, disk 2" but it is in fact #4.

    It'll never say "RedHat Fedora 4", unless they aren't afraid of being
    sued over copyright. Not allowed to brand anything as RH anymore unless
    you're selling their enterprise retail edition.

    Maybe it should read "Fedora 4, sponsored by RedHat". Since you can
    download Fedora disk images from fedora.redhat.com, I don't understand
    what the issue is...

    RedHat got a bit shitty a few years ago about people selling "Red Hat
    Linux" when they weren't specifying that all they were selling was the
    downloadable version. Apparently some people were getting ripped off.
    Anyway, they split it into Red Hat proper (that you buy, with support
    and a nice manual) and Fedora Core, the freely downloadable version.
    Soonish I'll be upgrading from FC3 to FC4.

    I got those from Russian friends for July 4. It upgraded from Fedora 3
    painlessly except for the deliberate mislabeling of the disks to make
    my life slightly less boring.

    I'm just hoping I won't have to muck around too much getting samba and
    the RAID drives working properly again.

    Reminds me of the first time I bought RH Linux, a number of years
    ago. Found Circuit City sold it, so I headed on over to one. (Ever
    notice how, when you walk into a CC store, you can almost feel the
    neurons in your brain being killed-off?) Looked for RH Linux.
    Couldn't find it. Walked up to the "tech support" desk and asked
    about it. "Tech support" guy: "Linux? Is that a Windows
    application?" Other customer standing there got a disgusted look and
    replied "It's a completely separate operating system." Tech. support
    guy was completely bamboozled by that one.
