I concur. For newbs such as myself installing/compiling programs is a
daunting task. I've read about RPM and packaging etc. but a how to or
"cook book" would be great. My attempts to install Ice Weasel and Putty
have proved unsuccessful.

that appears to work. At least it found and installed an update. Is this

There are two icons in my toolbar, Install Software and Update Software.
These icons are apparently related to Novell Zenworks and something
called Rug, neither of which I understand. I can find very little "how
to" info on either. What technical info I can find tends to be arguments
about whether Zenworks/Rug is a step forward or a step backward. Under
the circumstances, I think my confusion is reasonable.
Would anyone out there care to give me a quick synopsis of Zenworks/Rug
and some simple rules on how to use them? A Zenworks/Rug for Dummies
online article would also be helpful.
