Linuxconf's availability

Linuxconf is distributed in two formats: RPM and tar.gz. For Caldera, RedHat and SuSE systems, use the RPM version. For all others use the bin-elf.tar.gz version.

Please note that there is a single RPM for Caldera, RedHat and SuSE. The same binary installs on them. Note also that while this RPM install correctly on RedHat 5.0, a special RPM is also provided, glibc based.

At some point, there were one version (1.11) for RedHat 5.1 and 1.10 for all other distribution. THis is gone. Use the latest (1.13r4 currently) on all distribution.
