I have rebuilt the .215 blade with postgres mysql ... Its running Fedora 
Core 4 and its been updated with Yum
Linux xblade10-2 2.6.17-1.2142_FC4 #1 Tue Jul 11 22:41:14 EDT 2006 i686 
athlon i386 GNU/Linux
I have installed Mapbender but I 
could use some help configuring ;)

The only other project I have running on it is Sahana 

The system is connected to the telascience LDAP so your shell logins 
will work....
