/home comes off a NFS server, but /usr/local/ doesn't, I didn't realy
fancy a rebuild, and I think this was still quicker, it was just a bit
more work.

Anyway, I can confirm that RH9 is certainly no worse for latency
than RH8, I was able to run a 8 play 8 record ardour session with
freqtweak at 64 samples/period sans xruns :)
