This is wonderful!  Thanks so much.  As you indicate, it is possible to 
(one by one) get a working system up and running.  I'm close and have 
pd-extended and supercollider working.  I've used Fedora 12 rpms.

Do you have a list of Scientific Linux repos that you recommend?  And 
can you please tell me why you'd choose Scientific Linux over Centos?   
Is there additional software available for it that's not easily found 
with Centos repos?
