Hi, I'm new (three months) on the Cplant integration team at SNL
which currently has a couple thousand alphas, myrinet 2000 (and
other flavors), running RedHat.  I'm definately still learning the
ropes here, but over time if I become aware of significant technical
advantages of Debian over RedHat on clusters, I'll definately present
them.  I am a very strong Debian fan and have been (hopefully ;)
watching this list.  So I too, am all ears re: Debian&Myrinet etc,
Quadrics also has some potential here.  I wish I had something to
