Caldera had the good sense to just use rpm as Red Hat did, since they 
were a red-haired step child, so to speak. Ole Donnie caught hell, on 
the Caldera list, when Caldera had about their 3rd or 4th release and 
about a week or so later Red Hat came out with a new and improved 
version of RPM that nailed ours. It's not always roses when a distro 
competes with another. Ric
