Thanks for your answer.  I'm planning to run FC6 on all the cluster
nodes (although they will begin as paravirtual guest images on an RHEL5
host), but that plan is driven by the requirements of a few nodes in
particular.

I can certainly live without Conga, but of the cluster components I see
packaged with RHEL5, some other key ones appear to be missing on FC6,
particularly:

gndb and kmod-gnbd
gfs-utils and kmod-gfs

I do see cman, rgmanager, system-config-cluster, and ipvsadm.

Apologies in advance if I'm just not looking in the correct places.
