Everything seems to indicate I just need to get the source rpms and try going that way.  I am inexperienced at building from source though so that might create some new problems for me.

I agree about 7.2.  I installed it and had several problems. I do not like Nautilus either. It is such a resource hog. It also wants to control the desktop and things just don't seem to work right.  Of course, I'm so new to anything in Linux that nothing seems to work "right" to me.  I'm still learning.

Thanks for all your help.

I will look there.

Thanks again.
