sorry :P

well yeah, not all distro uses rpm, like not all distros uses deb, tgz, or whatever, but a lot of distros uses rpm, but, if the newbie in fact here use something like mandrake or redhat or similar, he can use the rpm stuff, just a little doubt, why rpm are evils????

I can definitely see how rpms are evil, but for a n00b like me, sometimes they are a necessary evil. I'll ween myself off of them eventually.
