Bart: What version of CentOS are you running on that box? Are you
using GNOME? There may be a connection between Evolution and GNOME. I
stopped using Evolution, when I moved to Thunderbird recently, but I
still have it installed. When you do get Firefox 3 running properly,
you will not miss 1.5....  Lanny
