In this case, the system admin duties are split between a friend, who is 
unavailable until this weekend, and me, who not sufficiently unixed to 
feel comfortable doing this.  He suggested CentOS, because I didn't want 
to mess with Linux problems.  He prefers Fedora, which we may migrate to 
after he returns.  (I also need Python 2.7.  CentOS has so many things 
that use Python 2.4.3 that the probability is very high that something 
will break if I upgrade to 2.7.)
