If it was just a desktop, I'd do anything, but it also runs Zope sites,
dns, and mail for four domains, some of which are kind of important to
me :-)

Oddly enough, I gave Gentoo 1.2 a swing and couldn't successfully
compile gcc. Chuck, you may remember when I was having trouble getting
Sorceror to compile XFree86? Well, this is the same computer. Methinks
there's some RAM issue that memtest86 can't pick up...

So, back on MDK 8.2 and avoiding cooker RPMs now :-)
