OK ... that looks pretty good.  Let's go with it. (Thanks for taking the
time :)

Agreed ... none of the them will have CentOS-4.2 or CentOS-3.6, etc.

Only 3 of the ones so far have any version info, and that is the docs,
centosplus, and the welcome screen ... they mention CentOS 4 ... which
should be OK throughout the lifetime of CentOS-4.x (till 2012).  The
other 4 are totally generic and could be used by any centos project.

I am going to do some text for a couple more slides, one for CentOS 4
CS/GFS.  Then I will modify the text a little for the 4 CentOS-4
specific ones (as new pix) for CentOS-3.

After these are finished, we should not need to make any mods to any of
them between releases.

Thank you very much,
Johnny Hughes
