Same hard disk, same PC

spec file almost identical except that I have --with-system-zlib configure section on Scientific Linux and
Release:       1%{?dist}  instead of Release:       %mkrel 2
Both are 64 bits and on ext4, boot is on ext2 for both.

I have 3 2TB hard disk. 2 for Linux distributions and 1 for eComStation (OS/2)
The only thing I run in virtualbox is windows XP when I have to do some work at home for the company I work for (a French company in Indiana)
