Thanks Akemi,

I have installed Fedora and Ubuntu on a USB drive and I was able to get
bumblebee to work, however I was not so successful when I tried it on
CentOS 6.2. I used the packages from ELRepo and they were installed
successfully but it did no work from the get go. Modify the config file and
I will still boot up with the intel driver.

Kind Regards
