The problems with older hardware and jacking windoz installs is in Fedora Core 2. The next blag, which i've been working on for the last few months and is pretty much ready, is based on Fedora Core 1.
I will continue to update the repositories including fixes and updates for older versions of BLAG, mostly just by grabbing stuff from fedoralegacy.
I've been working with fedora core 2 a bit and have compiled lots of blag applications for it.
Fedora Core 2 is very nice in some ways and completely sucks in others.
I anticipate there being two main branches of blag--one based on FC1 and another on FC2. FC2 is using kernel 2.6, which is great for some stuff, but blows for others. It doesn't even have firewire /at all/ in the current release.
I expect there to be a bit of a flood of errata updates for FC2. These will be rolled into blag, so BLAG20000 should even be more stable than FC2.
