Thanks Sean. Will upgrade readline (if RH allows without cribbing about
cnflicts and dependencies.)

I absolutely agree abt the cost of maintaining old versions. My only
reason is that my 7.1 runs and responds really fast. Ever since i
upgraded my office PC to 7.2 and then 8.0 its been getting slower.

However, its now impossible to install new versions of softwares at home
(Opera, Eclipse etc), so i shd take your advice fast.

Rob, i hope you got what you deserve :-) (Evelyn's reply)
