You use the RPMfusion kmod's, and use the yum plugin to protect them, right?

I'll let the following speak for itself.  Read it carefully. It's from a running machine.
# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Linux release 5.2 (Apollo)
# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.0.36 #3 Fri Apr 9 15:36:11 EDT 1999 i586 unknown

What's that about 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' at least with boxes that don't have a direct Internet connection......and this box is doing its job, and doing it well, and with the features that meet the need.  Yes, it's had a hard drive replacement, a motherboard/CPU replacement, among other things.... but even back in those days cloning drives was somewhat common.....
