BTW, I am not saying that you shouldn't discuss this on the CentOS
mailing list.  It is absolutely OK for you to discuss it here.  I am
just saying that you might be able to also find more help elsewhere too.

Just wanted to make sure my other post is not misinterpreted 'take this
off our list' .. it is instead a 'the helper you seek may not be
subscribed here' :)
