I just had to break away and relay my feelings and thoughts on the subject while it is all still fresh in my head. Armorgnome warned me as I began installing LMCE on my "paperweight" as he calls it, (poweredge 2650), that his first time installing was tricky and to expect the possibility of a couple of restarts and hangs to get my "thingy to do its thingy" lol. Total necessary reboots-3, my fault-1, overall experience - fairly simple, and well informed ... from an end-user's perspective I was quite impressed. So, to give credit where credit is due, huge thanks out to all of you that have been involved. Im looking forward to getting to know it alot better now from somewhere others than over my gnome's shoulder so I can find my own place to jump in and help as well ... lol. Nothing added yet, but soon ... very soon.
