"I've installed the RPMs on my RH8 system, and pages look simply beautiful now. Even the browser menus and widgets are antialiased. I've put up a screen shot here:"

More experimental Xft builds are available from Xft support is not currently enabled in the default Linux builds.

I noticed there was RH8.0 rpm packages available. I just finished configuring my new RH8.0 desktop and I don't want to mess nautilus and other stuff with the new mozilla. So the question is: Is it safe to say "rpm -Uvh mozilla*.rpm" with the XFT enabled packages, or should I try something else instead??
