I know of large studios which use a distro called CentOS, which is a 
lift of RH4, I believe.  free software, and all.

I like to imagine your wall.  How are you thinking of cooling it?  I say 
put the whole wall behind plexi, and flood it with coolant - so the 
whole motherboard is immersed...  access for maintenance might be a 
trick, though.

I hope you're well.
