Great Distro Guys,

No really... I'm sure you hear it often, but it is so. One question...

Did you make any adjustments to the kernel (2.6) that improved hardware detection? Of all the distro's I've used, yours was the first and thus far only to mount my firewire Lacie external harddrive. Any I've used about 16 distro's over the past few years. At first I thought it was Red Hat's 2.6, but I recently tried an Adios live disc and while it recognized the Lacie, it wouldn't mount it. So what did you do? Is there THAT much difference between RH's 2.6 and FC3's?

BLAG uses a Fedora kernel.

The difference is that Fedora Core 3 has issued a number of updated kernels since FC3 was originally released. So on the CD, we have a particularily well-tested kernel. This helps with hardware detection at install time, for instance.

I am anticipating Fedora releasing another new kernel for FC3 here shortly. When that comes, we plan to release BLAG30001.

Have fun,
