Cool, thanks. What is the recommended version of rpm? Sunfreeware has
version 3.03 in solaris pkg format, but that has to be too old. rpm.org
notes version 4.1 but also mentions that it comes with RH 8.0 and has some
issues with freezing, which I have noticed as well. If I want to give this
a try, I want to be sure to go with your recommendation.

Regards,

Ken
