I saved this as I also wanted to try FC-4. I did the FC-4 install, and
then driverloader thing. When this was finished, I tried the command
"dldrconfig --enable-workaround stack" and got this error
[root at localhost steve]# dldrconfig --enable-workaround stack
ERROR: unsupported workaround
/usr/bin/dldrconfig: extraneous arguments: stack
