Red Hat I keep reading all these tales of woe of people having bad experiences with Linux. Sure, I've had my own bad experiences, across many an OS, but just lately I've been running a Red Hat Linux 9 desktop full-time at home and have yet to run into any major issue. What follows is an overview of my personal experiences with Linux. But first, a bit about me.

speaking of RH9...

upgraded RH8 to RH9 last night.
sorry, but how the F*&% does it NOT SUPPORT a Plextor CDRW?(PX-W1210A). no matter what burning program I tried, it keeps coming up as unsupported.
also, RH made a serious blunder shipping Apache 2. Ive searched through apache.org, httpd.apache.org, php.net all just to figure out how to DOWNGRADE to Apache 1.3.2...no info anywhere(Apache 2 will not properly render half of my PHP scripts!-I had to modify phpinfo.php JUST to get it to render in Apache 2)

other than that my RH box is running very smooth(Celeron 1.4 Ghz w/ 512MB PC100 ram, ATI Mach 64 video, dual nics, ZIP100)

what burning programs will work with my Plextor(or what files do I need to edit that will enable support for my Plextor)?
is there ANY info on how to downgrade apache 2 to Apche 1.3.2?

thanks
