Yes, yes, I know about the "developer" tree under FC.  Several people I
know are running a-okay with it.  But I figured it wouldn't hurt to
shouve out the dough.  Again, even SuSE wants $129 for its x86-64

Definitely!  After dealing with the power and cooling issues of
self-assemble dual-Xeon and dual-Athlon MP systems over the last few
years, I'd like to find a vendor that sells a "skeleton kit"
dual-Opteron system (enclosure, power supply, mainboard, CPUs and
memory) -- all AMD certified.

Damn sweet!  I've gotta get FC running.  I'm still running RHL 8 and 9
here at home -- and the "Fortune 20" company I work for (until 12/31)
... well, long story.
