Hi Vaidotas,

You are right. It will dangerous for system maintenance. Any I once use my
own LinuxPC, so it does not to try something messy. I was using Mandrake,
and a lot of RedHat RPMs are compatible. Mandrake even once claimed that
their RPM 4.0 was compatible with all RedHat RPMs. But I am not sure the
other way around.
