Chris, this is not accurate: I understood that Centos is providing RHEL
type of distributions for platforms not supported by RH. I believe that
Sun Sparc fits in this category as well as the power pc architecture
ppc32 fits this category. RHEL offers a ppc64 version. We are running it
on a cluster here. CentOS also offers an Alpha version in this category.
CentOS does overlap RHEL in i386, x86_64, ia64. CentOS offers s390. I
thought RH did as well, but I don't see it in RHN channels.
