	I have been getting lots of people that I know to switch over to the 
vlc media player over the past few weeks. The only problem is that I'm 
tired of telling them all of the commands to install it. Therefor, I 
have made a perl script which should make it simple for anyone to 
install vlc.

	The only requirements of the script are, of course, perl and 
Digest::MD5. It has been tested and works flawlessly on RedHat 9 
(Default and fresh installation). It _should_ work on Fedora Core 1 and 
any other rpm based distribution.

	You can grab the installation script here: 
http://www.logged.org/dustin/installvlc.txt  --  Rename to .pl

	I just figured some people might be intrested in this to ease the 
install of vlc (even though it's not that hard to begin with). Depending 
on the feedback, I can go through it and add support for other formats 
and more features.
