You can find the Macromedia Flash 6 plug-in at (the Netscape plug-in link doesn't work...it requires flash ;( ) http://sdc.shockwave.com/shockwave/download/alternates/
RealPlayer 8.0 at: http://proforma.real.com/real/player/unix/unix.html?src=downloadr,000814rpchoice_c1
Sun's j2re-1_4_1_03-linux-i586-rpm.bin at http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.1/download.html
(RH doesn't seem to like Sun's Java J2re plug-in)
Gtk-Gnutella can be found at: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=4467
The current version of AIM is at: http://www.aim.com/get_aim/linux/latest_linux.adp
Reminder note: Mandrake 9.1 easily converts most MS True Type fonts for use with OpenOffice documents that can then be easily saved in alternative formats for those inferior Microsoft Office users

(...) Mandrake and Red Hat both did a fairly good job of hardware recognition and there were no apparent software application configuration problems or errors after a post install reboot. (...)
My question is specifically about KDE Desktop Sharing with RH9. I was unable to use it. Can you use it?
I posted more details about this here in this forum.

I anticipate that this tool is going to give a huge boost to Linux because it will be much easier to support newbies and provide general maintenance via a remote connection.
