Thanks Torsten, I am trying to install VLC0.8.0 for Red Hat 9 and run 
into a whole lot of dependency issues so I am trying your method right 
now.  It looks like that apt-get for VideoLAN client only has the 0.6.0 
package and not the updated one.  So instead of apt-get I am using yum.
However, it seems to be taking a huge amount of time, it seems to be 
getting all the packages, even more than the dependencies listed in 
VideoLAN.  Is this correct, I did type "yum install vlc".
