well, next time you shut it down, take a look and see if it could possibly be enabled. I have no idea if that would cause RH to compile for HT, but who knows.

Maybe someone else here (read: Tinkster!) will see this thread up on top and lend a hand here, cause if this isnt the case, I may be in over my head very quickly and dont want to give bad advice.

it is a good way to realy begin to cut your teeth on linux. It is not that hard to manage, but it is not as simple as many of the other distros. IMHO, if you want total control over your box without alot of added extras your dont want installed, its definately one of the ways to go. Definately manageable.
