Based upon my experience with Zimbra (and other similar vendors), I'm a 
big fan of NOT having anything that they don't explicitly support 
touching the Zimbra box.  It helps keep the fingerpointing to a minimum 
when things end up going wrong; if they can point to the OS as a reason 
to claim a box is "unsupported," they will; compared to the cost of a 
Zimbra license, the $400 or whatnot for RHEL is inconsequential.
