Thanks Jesse.

Yeah I think webmin will do OK for most add-on packages like
Apache, Postfix, Samba, etc., but as I noted earlier the 
/etc/sysconfig stuff like network interfaces is not directly
supported.  For example try going into the network interfaces
and look at the list of "Interfaces activated at boot time".
You won't see any.

I think I can patch webmin to do more or less the right thing,
but I'm starting to wonder if anyone will care.  It's a bit
like building your own swimming pool and then hiring a service
to maintain it.  :-)
