  • Installed two of the 750GB drives into benfranklin. Need to come up with a partition layout. Maybe just one system per disk (one of which will be virtualized)? I think this is good enough for testing, so that's what I'll do.
  • Currently torrenting CentOS 64-bit to blackbody's /tmp, so we can get a RedHat experience without dealing with registering the VMs, etc. Or should we just bite the bullet and use RHEL5 64bit for testing? Going to use COS; don't feel like dealing with RHN.
