Well yes, my RHEL world is pretty stable ( I mean rock solid ) and I don't like to mess
with that, however I also like to test and do various little things without feeling restricted
by my OS vendor ( you know, Microsoft, Oracle etc ).   ;-)

I will most likely fire up a Debian box for this and see what the issues are with
this fancy NVidia Quadro card that RHEL says can not do 3-D acceleration.
