BRP on Fedora 2

Just thought that I'd drop a note to the full list - I got the BRP program
to run all the way from start to finish on Fedora 2.

This doesn't mean that it works right - it still has cdrom mount/dismount
issues - and I've left it full of extra try/excepts and print calls - and
it doesn't seem to display the tallies properly.

But it least I was able to get all the way through - logging in, scanning,
reading CDs, and reconciling (I didn't configure a printer on the machine
so I couldn't print the final report.)

I'm going to stare at the code a bit more - and remove some of the more
glaring of my debugging code - and then I'll make it available.

Somebody may need to dig deeper into the CD-rom mount/dismount issue. (I
had to modify /etc/fstab to allow a user mount, and also on some desktops,
such as KDE, the desktop fights to automount and open the CD itself.)
