Silly RedHat Lies

Consider these silly stories, swiped from the 7.3 installer:
  • RedHat was named because the founder used to wear a red baseball hat while he was in college. He was so good at fixing computers, that people started asking for 'the guy in the red hat'.
  • RedHat was named because the founder was so desperate for a name he started pointing at items at random. He happened upon a red university hat given to him by his grandfather.
  • RedHat was named to reflect the historical fact that red hats were symbols of freedom and revolution.
Yeah, and they are all true. Really.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
