Now that I am not the first responder... Sweet setup
As for shelling out 800 bux, it depends on what you will be doing with that system. Is this going to be running for a Super company, or what? Or is this just going to be hosting a small FTP server for you and a few buddies to have online storage for?
I see that you said "this is just a playground for now" so I am guessing it's not a huge business. If my guess is right, I'd kinda hold off on shelling out that many skins. If you do want some support there are other versions, and other distros that offer support for alot less money. SuSE does for ~80 bux on their latest release, and I think the other's are all fairly closely priced. Mandrake I think pulls in a little lower, at around 69 for a single DVD version of their latest, and I am not sure where RH has there's with 8.0 out.
I am sure they aren't near 800 bux though
