Hey Billy,

I had suggested earlier that you take a look at CentOS 3.4 as opposed to
the 4.0 route. The reason is you will be a a lot more familiar with it and
will have less headaches with implementation.

The 4.0 version is much more secure, but you have to disable those security
capabilities to get the OS to behave with MailScanner and a whole other
mess of services.
