Everything from 0.6.0 can carry over to the new version, except the new 
RPM's I uploaded. Because pthread headers aren't in Red Hat 8.0, the new 
version of VLC should only work on Red Hat 9.0, unless the end-user 
upgrades their glibc packages, which isn't really worth the trouble. 
Also, it was only built for mozilla 1.2.1, so that's another point where 
RH8 might not work with it.
