Not your fault, I think it was a case of one too many PEBKACs and one
hour too few of sleep.

Given the interest in Gentoo, I wonder if a demo install during the
installfest might not be a bad idea. I will have VMware available for
other distros, but gentoo will probably not be happy.

Just because I am in a mildly evil mood, and given your interest in
media production, you may wish to consider DeMudi and/or 64 studio,
which are Debian/Debian Pure 64 distros that are preconfigured for media
(particularly audio) production. There is also Planet CCR
Demudi can be found here: http://demudi.agnula.org/
and 64 studio here: http://www.64studio.com/
There is a Red Hat/ Fedora Core based project as well called Planet
CCRMA, more info can be found here:
So, more pondering :)
