Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RH8.0 from the CD-ROMS.
2.Install some 3rd party RPMs and/or upgrade some RPMs

Output of rpm -q queries for the four rpms.
Ermm... in this format, I can't tell what lines go with which commands :) Could
you split it up and make it obvious which goes with which?
