Re: [gembud] centos box

I've had very good results with various flavors of build-your-own, using
SuperMicro hardware. The Lab, I believe, currently uses HP, and I suspect a
lot of NOAA does, but I'm neither in IT, nor acquisitions, so I'm not
positive. The last CentOS box I built, all the parts came from MicroCenter,
and I was on the air within an hour of getting home, save the install time
for CentOS (so, call it 2 hours total).
