I have 4 OQOs for my test bed. Centos on 2 so far. One is working with 
HIP already, the other I am working on improving how it is to use Centos 
with. One is still running default XP, so I have a 'baseline'. The other 
still in the box.

Neither Centos build has video working beyond 640x480 (or 800x480, 
whatever it is). Want 1024x768 working.

Fixing the video is important. When I am testing HIP, I can't be remote 
consoleing in (where I get the resolution of the remote I am running 
vncviewer on), because: I am testing with IPv6 only (and vnc is broken 
with IPv6) and I do not want 'spurious" connections dirtying up my 
tcpdumps. So the systems are connected to my KVM.
