[Beowulf] CentOS plus Fedora kernel?

It would be safer to custom build a new Centos kernel.  There are also
"enhanced" kernels available for Centos in the centosplus software
repository.  They include support for technologies not normally found in

Without knowing more about what you are looking for, I'd recommend checking
out centosplus before exploring kernels from alternate distributions.  

That is the only wisdom I have... as minor as it is.
