As you my have noticed CentOS 5.7 and Scientific Linux 5.7 both came out today... as did updated official OS Templates from the OpenVZ project. Thanks Kir!
I found a short recipe ( http://scientificlinuxforum.org/index.php?showtopic=13&h l=bold) for converting a CentOS host to a Scientific Linux host and decided to give it a try. It worked great. I created a CentOS 5.6 container, followed the recipe and when I was done I had a Scientific Linux 5.7 container. I had to add a couple of extra packages that aren't mentioned in the recipe and I was able to ignore those packages needed for a desktop system (mostly desktop logos and branding stuff).
