That is interesting. The FC2 you used was the ISO image from the site? I 
burned the iso image on the 1st and we ran into the aforementioned 
problems. I am not in charge of the Bladecenter either (so much cool 
technology which I don't get to play with). Is there a version with the 
bladecenter (or blades)?

We also ran into something with the APG display with the SMP kernel which 
was fixed around June 3 (no, I can't find the message any more)
