Just as a clarification, if you are not already running RHEL5 or CentOS5, you are probably not interested in this beta program, anyway. As of 5.0, RedHat has changed their naming convention, and 5.1 is just a periodic (quarterly, sort of) update which is not very exciting at all, unless you have mission critical machines already running RHEL5 and want to help make sure that the minimal changes in 5.1, when it is released, will not cause you problems.

Very boring stuff, really. But every change, however small, has the potential to cause problems, and this program is designed to help address that mundane, but important issue.

" and 5.1 is just a periodic (quarterly, sort of) update which is not very exciting at all,"

Except of course:

"Ext3 filesystem now fully supports filesystem sizes of up to 16TB"

...which is pretty darn exiting and important (and oft requested) to a lot of companies.
