from this statement, i presume that you have not installed and used
Scientific Linux for any length of time. tho i may be wrong.

i can say from my own experience of installing and using "SL", your
statement is not entirely true.

on this system/box, i have SL and Fedora installed because i want a
stable 'long life' os and a 'play with' os.

SL is very stable and is maintained by a group of 'tech heads' that
know what they are doing. if they did not, they would not be working
in the environment of Fermilab Accelerator Research Center, aka,
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.

if it is safe for such an environment, it is safe for my use.

besides, it is RHEL. "if it's Red Hat, it has to be good". 8-D


peace out.

The installation instructions stated to install Windows 2000 or better.
