Ok.. So this is out there I know.. But I just wanted to kick the idea around.
I have been using kickstart (awesome btw) to install my system exactly how I
want it to be when it reboots. This means setting up /etc/sendmail.cf
/etc/inittab /etc/aliases /etc/dhcpd etc....

programs, be it text, or gconf's registery.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
