if someone else has had this problem, what is missing on the fedora software that the box could be looking for?
is it a sun problem? fedora problem?

package downloaded from sun
the one for opensolaris runs fine, just not the one for loading into fedora 8.

the sun download is a newer version than the one you pointed me to on fedora.
actually when you download it from the sun site you don't have to make anything only run the file in the update manager and everything installs.
you get a menu choice that starts the program.
everything works fine till it asks you to register it and that screen freezes.
doesn't do it in opensolaris
but they are two different downloads, assuming that each is set for the particular OS.
