apt-key to authenticate packages. For directions on how to add the repository

As for fixes, dataeng start-up runlevels are corrected to reflect Debian/Ubuntu
defaults. Also, srvadmin-services.sh script is modified to use bash as shell

I am happy to find out that Dell is offering more support for Ubuntu. I have several PowerEdges and all run Ubuntu, which is a active distro and fit very well for academic research use.
