Today, I was feeling awful, sick as a dog...
I did go to work, and built some other RPMS : phpmyadmin and a hacked version of RedHat 7.0's initscript to handle the neat Linux Progress Patch that displays a nice frame-buffered graphical screen instead of the good old kernel messages and init scripts output. This thing is really fun and now all you need is get the Linux 2.2.18 source, patch the beast, upgrade the initscripts RPM and there you go :-)

I also spent a fairly long time trying to install a RedHat 7.0 server with an Adaptec 2100S RAID card... the i2o drivers for that thing only exist for 6.1and 6.2 on Adaptec's site! Luckily, I got in touch with a guy that had the same problem and he sent me the binary drivers for 2.2.16-20 some other guy from Adaptec had given him... why the heck don't they put them on their website? Dunno...

OK, now I'm going to get some sleep... aaargh my throat hurts :-(
