PowerEdge 2650 & Redhat 7.3

Actually, I think as far as hardware goes, 7.3 wins here.  However, I'm
having some as yet unanswered issues with 7.3 on the 2650 - mainly
revolving around the snmp daemon throwing wrong values for the Broadcom
5701 10/100/1000 cards, and some NFS issues that were fixed with a
kernel upgrade (via RHN).  I'm still debugging and testing, so I'll let
you know if other stuff comes up.

Just so you know, in spite of net-snmp's inability to talk to the
Broadcom NICs, several iperf tests are proving them to be quite decent!
