The UMN site is in the VINI database. However it doesn't look like
you've registered for a VINI account (at least not associated with the
UMN site). Did you register for one at www.vini-veritas.net? When
you do, you should be able to select University of Minnesota as your
site. Send me a mail after that and I'll approve you.
For machines that are permanent parts of the VINI infrastructure, we'd
like beefier boxes (preferably SMP) and plenty of bandwidth. It
sounds like you're thinking of this initial deployment as only
