Every time, except for my very first Distro (bought a Redhat 6.2 box in
the Virgin Megastore on Oxford Street in 2000) and the occasion when
someone on this list was kind enough to bring a copy of RH8.0 to a
meeting, about a year ago.  It usually works very well .. out of about
(at a guess) 8 or 9 magazine-sourced installs, I've only come across one
badly-packaged distro.
