I've got a dual opteron sun x2100 running centos4.4 that is currently
going spare. So I can test c4->5 upgrade. I'd also like to test install
over http and kickstart over http if that's useful.

I can devote a bit of time to this since all our important systems run
on centos4. If there are any specific tests I could do, let me know.

If all that works I'll be interested in looking at how the Xen stuff is
coming along.

I know you are all busy but I'd just like to mention that that 4way
itanium box is still sitting idle in my machine room waiting to do
centos builds :)
