Coming to doing: I can prepare a CentOS 5 VM (64 bit) during the 
weekend, with the same disk layout as the current CentOS 6 VM and with 
the same sshd configuration. I will need information on how the network 
is supposed to be configured, since ideally I'd like to have it working 
out of the box at Apache. Then others can go on and configure it, but 
Ariel was already working on it before noticing we had the wrong version 
of CentOS.

Of course, before that we should ensure that we still have tethys 
available and that it already has a supported (by Infra, I mean) 64-bit 
Linux system as the host (or that one is installed via the standard 
Infra processes). Should this paragraph go to an Infra JIRA?
