"Can someone please tell me what is so cool about 'dropline' gnome and please post some screenshots of it so I can see, "

Dropline gnome basically:
1.) Upgrades alot of your packages and adds some ulitiles
2.) Installs a sweet theme
3.) Adds nautilus enhancements

"Oh and one last thing, can I install dropline gnome via rpm in Fedora Core Release 1, if someone has done it tell how please :-) "

Dropline Gnome is only avaliable for Slackware users ;)
