the Ghostscript RPMS on the RH 6.0 CD are "broken" in that
gv and namely printtool will not work.  I upgraded to
ghostscript version 5.50 and it works now.  I was able to
find the ghostscript-5.50 RPM but it took a long time to
find a ghostscript-fonts-5.50 RPM.  The fonts RPM I found
was and install and not an upgrade.  I fear that if there is
now upgrade to the RPM on the 6.0 CD that my rpm database
may become hosed up.
