I feel I have to clarify a few things.

1) I do not want to create some CentOS fork, take it only as a bypass
solution. We have to stick with upstream with all pros and cons.
2) Install DVD contains only slightly different kernel RPMS. Nothing
more or less. So updates go smoothly. Maybe too much. If CentOS is about
to release a new kernel RPMS, user will "yum" them, reboot and ooops :o)
3) Kernel RPMS are here:
4) Well, maybe I could create CD install media deltas.
5) And of course ICH9 patched CentOS is not supported by CentOS
