yes, I have done the same thing.
In this way I install a working node in 10 minutes.
(the tarball is less then 100Mb)
But next time I want to try replicator or something else.
(37 Athlon AMD 1.4/1.6/1.8 GHz)

By the way... someone can explain me the "zero copy" problem?
(I mean...wich is the REAL difference between a RTL NIC and a 3COM/Intel
NIC, since the price is very different? TNX!)
