Both. I have Scientific Linux (rhel in disguise) with the rpms, kde,
gnome, etc. to drag myself kicking & screaming into the 21st
century ;-). I also have the lean 'n' mean LFS. Lean mainly because I
didn't bother finishing details. LFS has the source, and S.L. has the

These are expanding instruction sets. Verilog and vhdl are usually
regarded as separate languages, as someone wrote a standard for vhdl
that is being expanded in different directions by competing
corporations. This has an interpeter to go from vhdl to a subset of it
which the whole package uses. I believe you can also save as verilog. In
fact looking at the FAQ, they give verilog and vhdl separate file
extensions. I really think I need "vhdl for dummies", but would settle
for "Verilog for dummies" if anyone has a copy of either ;-).

Yes, I _finally_ copped on to that and have the downloads going. 2x490MB
zips for a dvd. Interesting.
