         tcpdump with port 53 was no different than with port 50.
         Waited an hour after startup and still had that same blue 
screen. Is that the gnome desktop screen? So no it doesn't eventually 
work. An hour is eventually right?  :-)
        yum update installed 23 packages successfully.
         Should I re-instal again? It will be the 3rd time.
