Well, I'm no RH insider, so a few details may have escaped me. But essentially this means that the product named Red Hat Linux will be discontinued as 
the message states. Red Hat Linux is now Red Hat Fedora Core, which is due for official release later this month, starting at version 1.0. Fedora core is now 
a project, not a product. The project has a more open development model, where many more people can contribute to it. However, this does mean that it is 
no longer a retail product like red hat linux was, but it is still essentially the same system. For more info, visit:
P.S. If anyone's installed fedora core, please write me, I got it installed but am having some major issues in the areas of bootup and networking. Not sure 
whether this latest beta is broken or if I screwed something up during installation, since kickstart doesn't seem to work exactly the same.
