    I'm downloading 8.2 now. I will tell you what i think when im done (About 4 hours left @ 38k/s)

    Im currently using Redhat 5.2 and im sure ANYTHING will be an improvement. Its not user friendly at all. I cant even workout how to shut the computer down :p

    OMG! You can d/l stuff at such speed and you didn't upgrade yer Linux installation? That's too much! :D

    Well, to shut down from any Linux distro, quit X and type shutdown -H now... If memory serves me correctly :D

    I thought the 3 finger salute only reboots the machine but doesn't shut it down?

    Ah yes... That'll work as well; thanks for the tip!

    Actually yes, you are right. I was not thinking straight. That's because my machine really isn't shutdown ever instead of after EXTREME frag fests so its just rebooted to switch operating systems.
