1) To clarify, no clusters running Fedora currently, but I would like to 
see it (currently we're running RH9).

2) Excellent! Thank you for the tip.

3) I am more concerned about the quality of lapack packages dropping 
over time or becoming orphaned.

I guess if that becomes a problem I'll deal with it at that time.
