		My PeeCee bg with Unix is from '86 to '95: SVR[34]. 
		Briefly in '93 I used Linux on a 386SX laptop, but
		did zero sysadmin.  In 1995 I switched back to BSD
		that I used in college.

		System admin is a bear at best; is there an easier
		or harder way?  I've heard that there is a web
		interface that makes things easier... dunno.

		I'm using SuSE on one system here and still had to
		do things the hard way when I added the SuSE box
		to my BSD platforms.

		...The idea of having to relearn Sys5 sysadmin
		is not something I'm looking forward to... but it'd
		be nice if there were one uniform (or quasi-uniform)
		way of doing things.
