contributed to this release, our beta testers, and everyone who reported
a bug or made a feature request.

Here's a (partial) list of new features in Zoot:

filesystem. This allows users to install Red Hat Linux onto an
existing partition rather then having to repartition their system.

into separate packages to improve sysadmin flexibility.
