  just to be clear, i have nothing whatsoever against centos 4.  but
being that i'm relatively new to centos compared to most of the folks
here, i've never used it.  and while it certainly deserves the love of
good documentation, it's simply a case of not enough hours in the day.

  i'm already working with fedora, ubuntu and, now, centos 5.  i just
don't have the time to install centos 4 and give it equal attention.
my current client is installing *new* systems -- there will be no
RHEL 4 whatever, so it would be a poor investment of my time to get
familiar with it.

  in any event, the question remains -- should all centos doc pages
give equally meticulous coverage to both centos 4 and 5?
