BTW How do I take the rpm files and their auto loader(called?), and make my own DVD of my system with the updated files for easier re-install as needed, pls?

    Hi!
    For the Kmail files, I would suggest you use terminal/konsole to look in your /home/username directory, they will be hidden files and you can view them with the ls -la command. Look for filenames like .kmail or .mail, I do not use Kmail so I am not perfectly sure of the file names.
    For the FF2 bookmarks you simply need to open FF and click on Bookmarks>organize bookmarks>file>export to a file and save it to where ever you like. For FF3, you need Bookmarks>Organize Bookmarks>one of these tabs has a Backup Bookmarks option, click that.

    I'm not sure what you mean about the RPM files and autoloader, can't you just create a CD with an ext3 filesystem and save all your downloaded RPMS to that?
