One minor note re the RDT kernels,

The other day I said everything else on my system seemed to run OK. This
is slightly wrong. For some strange reason, named doesn't start via the
boot up process, even though it's specified on in runlevels 3 and 5 via
chkconfig. Doing 'service named start' after the boot fixes it--but iits

Not sure it means anything--and it's no problem at my end.

Yes, I'm trying to run everything on this box.
