Whoops, I goofed in copying the NetZero files from the Kubuntu to the FC5
without actually looking at what I was copying, since I had forgotten that
I had originally set it up through gksudo, where it now needs to go
through kdesu where gksudo was. In addition, I neglected to verify that
the FC5 properly installed a suitable Java Runtime Environment, which is
an absolute requirement for the NetZero client. My bad again. I thought I
fixed the mounting permissions, but I didn't get the chance to try them
afterward. FC5 is indeed crap after Kubuntu, but that is an entirely
unrelated issue.
