hoo boy, I got myself into a right muddle. So OK - if it has 'centos'
in the release number, then there were changes from upstream -
otherwise you can use the upstream vendors source package!!! Phew, glad
someone around here has their head screwed on - thanks for setting me
right, KB!!

While I'm here - thanks to the whole CentOS team for a great effort on
5.6. I installed it on a laptop for the wife and she loves it!! For
myself - once I've the sources get here I can start our patch and
re-compile for our in-house discless clusters.
