Thanks Martin. I'll check it out. I'm a packaging ignoramous, but I 
think that the RHEL packages work, and then there's something called 
EPEL that provides additional packages.

I may back track on my choice of Centos and try to get a version of 
Ubuntu running on Amazon EC2. I've been trying to find a pre-built 
Amazon Machine Image to use as a starting point and it's proving to be 
quite a puzzle of operating system, backing store, package repositories 
that actually work, etc ... last night though I think I might have found 
a path that doesn't require that I build my own AMI from scratch.

Anyway, that's the only reason I ended up with CentOS, and I'd really 
like to stick with Ubuntu if I can because that is what I know.
