I did buy a 1.0 CD, but by the time my BnW came through I found that I
could not use the 1.0 CD for much but a drinks coaster. So I installed 1.1
by ftping the two files (new kernel and ramdisk) from yellowdog, then in
the installer used FTP from one of the many sites that provide the full
distribution (yellowdog was not answering pings that AM, so I used UIUC).
It went jes fine after I heeded all those little notes on the last page of
the 1.1 pdf (technotes), and it ran for 12 days until our many-Kv cable
powering the campus blew--as did the backup. Can't blame that on Linux!
