Uh, it never got here, so I didn't loose it. But going into that isn't going
to help. Let's drop that, at least for the moment...

I'm setting up a number of virtual machines with different OSs and OS
variations on them so builds can be done in those environments. I believe
that is one of (if not the main) functions of the build farm.

I've started with a virgin RH 7.2 and a patched RH 7.2 system. I have/can
get distributions and patches for 7.x and 6.2. With a little help, I should
be able to put up other Linux distributions and possibly a FreeBSD 
distribution as well, but I need to establish a priority list since I can
not do them all at once. I also need to schedule the builds since having more
than one virtual machine up at a time is probably going to put more load
on the base system than I can handle, particularly since it has other uses
