Well, at least you have a Milan. Sometimes I wish those would still be 

Anyway, on the subject of RPMs, maybe upgrading rpm itself to version 
4.x would be a more logical course of action. Version 4 and up come 
with a separate rpmbuild command, so that the two functions, building 
packages and installing them, are handled by two different programs. 
This may (or may not) make things easier for building other packages.

I've noticed just recently that my modem/router's MTU is set to 1498, so 
go figure... If it works at any value, don't fiddle with it :-)
