Redhat uses Linuxconf, afaik. The difference is that, linuxconf, and
all the redhat conf tools, are, to my knowledge, free software,
meaning we could take them and tweak them. If they are indeed good,
no sense reinventing the wheel. OTOH, non free software is of course,
totally useless. Sounds like linuxconf is the one worth
investigating, for those of you who are interested in this project.
