What's wrong with the Linux from RedHat's HPC/`Grid' offering (whatever
it's called), then?  It has a 2.6.24 base.  I can't try it because of a
pestilential proprietary driver, but it seemed really to be more
appropriate for compute nodes in various respects (given that I don't
have a choice about running a RHEL-based system).
