Thanks guys for all the really helpful information - brilliant! I've now
installed the beta version (the wiki.centos link was very helpful) and
it's working on my CentOS 5 system, except that I can't get anything
through my microphone - I've got sound through the speakers, so the
soundcard seems to be configured OK. The same hardware works fine in
Windows XP (dual-boot system). Any ideas please on how to configure
and/or test the microphone and get it working, 'coz skype aint gonna be
much use without it!
