And yes, to make this a CentOS post, it was (and still is)
running CentOS.

We normally ship RHEL 3 ES x86 in our reseller kits --
installed with a Quickstart disk, RHN setup on first-boot so
they can get Red Hat updates/support, etc... yada, yada,
Standard "we ship a commercially supported distro" to
end-users reality.

But for our own purposes -- from development to deployment --
we regularly utilize CentOS 3 x86 -- spinning our own single
CD installer with our logos, etc...  And that included the
stuff we deployed in Louisanna, Mississippi and Texas over
the last few months.

And yes, we have stuff in south Florida right now too.
I'll shutup now. <marketing=off>
