Ok, I have used Fedora before and value its ease of use. Do you know if there are any known VCL compatibility issues with specific Fedora releases? As of right now it looks like we will be provisioning a mixture of standalone machines, and vmware images. This VCL implementation should serve as a prototype for our university (Howard University) as we are currently working with IBM to receive a new lab filled with IBM blade servers. Our VCL implementation will serve as somewhat of a demo to IBM as to what we could do in the future with dedicated IBM blades.
