Actually, now that I have thought about it, and looked around the web pages, 
we don't have anything that says... if you're running a strange or old 
combination of linux kernels, and flavors you may get strange messages.  So
far when stuff like that used to come through bug-report pages I would just
tell them that they needed to upgrade their systems to something more 
commercial or stable release... like RedHat.  

So I recant my previous argument.  Dean's statement should be put in to the
docs somewhere.

This is also assuming that we don't go crazy documenting every linux flavor
that's out there.  I do all my testing on RedHat 3.0.3, and 4.1.  It's an 
extremely stable system, with patches out in hours if there is a problem
found.  I have had no problems with it.
