Nope. It's a new system, not more than a couple months at most, and no,
it's never had Xen. The other admin and I can't remember who did the deed,
but we installed CentOS 5.5 as a fresh install.

Yeah, I do it on all the servers... and my home system, and my netbook,
and that's got the Ubuntu remix, and is that *irritating*, since every
time it updates the kernel (too frequently, IMO), it puts the same damn
things *back*.
