It will really really help to install any set of development packages which may have come with your distro, I think RedHat has such a group. These will be sources, header and library files which is usually what another app wants to satisfy any dependancies.

would these dev packages you are speaking of be called source cd 1 and 2?

or would that be the linux source code?

the only other disks I got were word perfect 8 for linux and the 3 install cds

and a documentation cd

I foudn the one for my distro at the site you gave but it wont let me download it

it says too many connections from you internet or somthing like that


please put up a direct link to it just incase I am clicking the wrong link

I am getting this when I click the other link

Plugger: No appropriate application for type audio/x-pn-realaudio-plugin found!

When you installed linux, did you have a section where you could pick which apps to install?
Have you used any frontend for rpm, maybe Kpackage or grpmi?
The packs of libraries etc could easily fill 2 cds, do those disks contain rpm files? You shouldnt need the source for most apps, as rpms are usually the pre-compiled binaries for your system and processor architecture. Some rpms are packs of source files, such as the kernel sources.

Oh, and for even more fun, RedHat doesnt come with MP3 support out of the box, you have to download a small plugin. It also uses a broken compiler or library iirc, which makes upgrading or installing from source a real bitch, or so it seems.
Never had those probs with Mandrake. Plus the Galaxy theme smokes Bluecurve
