Well then I'll just bug ya'll. ;)

Well, not quite. They don't manage the box at all, in fact, they don't
have root on it.  It's a leased, dedicated box.  They do set up the OS
initially (and very securely, I might add) but after that, they don't
touch it.  But I'd rather not a) deal with remotely putting a different
distro on a machine I don't have physical access to, and b) be in the
position of saying "hey guys, could you look at x" and them saying "ah
well, we'd love to but we don't know jack about that distro".  I'm sure
they'd be very helpful but...well, that's a lot of effort for something
that is, in effect, an indulgence for myself and some family and friends.
So if I can move to a supported OS with minimal pain, that's what I'll do.

This is what I was afraid of.  Indulgance or not, I want my machine up and 
stable. 

Thanks for all the input
