Re: gfloppy


I'm afraid I can't help much further.  Here's the capibilities in my Red
Hat stock version of gnome-utils:

Description :
GNOME (GNU Network Object Model Environment) is a user-friendly set of
GUI applications and desktop tools to be used in conjunction with a
window manager for the X Window System. The gnome-utils package
includes a set of utilities for GNOME, including Gcalc, Gdialog,
Gdiskfree, and many others.


Preumably, you could find this rpm or sources easily and go from there.
