Wow, I'm impressed with that! I only started using RH at 5.0 (used to use slackware), and it was already glibc by then. One question you (or Cynthia) may be able to answer for me, why does RH still use bash 1.x as it's default shell, I'm sure that there is a good reason but I don't know what it is :-)
