I'm kind of nervous about using 5.4 since it's not
considered a "Release" version yet and I'm planning on
using this for a production machine... that is
assuming I can get it working properly ;)

Is it the general consensus that 5.4 RC2 is more
stable than 5.3 (who cares if 5.3 is "release" if it
locks up right...) and could be used in a production
box?  Or is this a bad idea...?  As of now I'm
definitely not comfortable with using this 5.3 box in
