Accessing above with default IE6 brings up
Untrusted Certificate page.  With choices Proceed,
Stop, AddCertificate (to root table).  It seems
conectiva issued itself its own  certificate.  I
hope this is just silliness rather than a devious
attempt to get people to accept its
self-certification, which I was not about to do.
I know enough that I thought it probably safe to
proceed without adding cert, but not enough to be
sure.   Some people would stop there, and I might
have on another day.  I recommend you take this up
with conectiva.
