New Job new distro

Have started in a new job!
but basically am doing Next Generation Sequencing Bioinformatics.
Sounds like a mouthful but hope it goes well.

1st week was spent on sourcing a cheap cluster for analysis. but 'cheap cluster' is an oxymoron!

Playing around with CentOS now. So far, its less than enjoyable compared to Ubuntu. Especially the 7 CDs or single DVD downloading.
I can't understand why making people download so many RPMs would be a good thing for bandwidth or convenience.

I miss my Ubuntu box. but setting up a HPC cluster using Ubuntu might be tricky without tech support.

Any advice for those familiar with ABI Solid's offline cluster setup?
