When using the K control panel, seeing under 'system' that there is a new
LILO control item is a nice administrative addition, but it's in the wrong
place.  Unless this IS the right, new place.  But how am I supposed to know
that?  It's time to find a place for ALL the administrative tools to be,
place them ALL there to be found at the administrators convienence, and
STICK WITH IT.  I'm finding items in the KCC that aren't under 'system' on
my GNOME menu (same goes for the KDE/System programs menu) and vice-versa. 
It's getting to be quite confusing.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run K control panel
2.Compare the admin tools with whats found in the KDE system menu, the
GNOME system menu, and the System subitem under the KCC.  There are
programs missing from all locations, that may be present in others.

Actual Results:  Confusion

Expected Results:  Uniformity.  I see why the admin tools have to be
scrambeled over numerious menus, across numerious locations, and each
location contains a different set of tools.  

It would seem that Linuxconf is being phased out in favor of more
attractive graphical tools, which is fine, as long as the functionality
found in Linuxconf is duplicated PERFECTLY (and the replacement tool is
found in the KCC, the Gnome CC, both, or everywhere.)

I've added icons for lilo-config and kwuftpd to "kontrol-panel" from kdeadmin,
which pretty much is a place that lists all system configuration tools.
It's not in the GNOME menus, there's nothing I can do about that, complain to
the GNOME people if you want to (but they probably won't like the idea of adding
anything that uses Qt to their menus, as usual).

Do YOUR Gnome people have a problem with this?  Is it a logical reason, or 
an "ethical" one? (and by ethical, I mean egoststical)

Is there a place I can submit a report in reguard to virtualy ALL admin tools?  
Or should I just send a similar request to the gnome section?
