I was surprised how very much like centos - I had the impression
SL was more of a stable-means-versions-from-5-years-ago distro,
but it appears to be mostly a repackaging of RHEL, and reasonably
up-to-date. from a quick glance at the SL-5.0 readme, the number
of customizations is quite small, so I do wonder what the point is.
