Devin,

In terms of the installing the MBR after the OS install, is this the 
responsibility of me, or the datacenter? I would assume that I would 
have to copy the MBR if the install already completed..

Also, would I need KVM access to do this or can it be done through SSH? 
My DC charges a rental for KVM.
