Red Hat Linux 7.1

I don't know if anyone here has had the chance to download or install Red 
Hat 7.1 with the new 2.4.2-2 kernel, but last night I did.  I have not begun 
a search for bugs yet, but I must say that I am happy with the install, 
without modification.  It supported my sound card (Sound Blaster Live) right 
out of the box.  This is the first distribution to have a driver already.   
In fact, it supported all the hardware on my computer, from the install 
probe (BTW, I am running it on an HP Pavillion 8665c).
They did some slight modifications to the anaconda installer.  Mostly 
cosmetic, but it now has a section to allow you to configure the installed 
firewall software.  Not too shabby.  Oh well, I guess I will look for others 
comments.  Have a great day!
