This is not the same as bug #838.

Why is this, Is webmin-ldap-netgroups missing ? I have no problem on the
machine installed with the image of 20040904 (After fixing the
slapd/webmin issue). But that one wasn't there I think during the last

It should not be.

No It's not, bug 767 is a problem with the wrong webmin-dhcp module or
that the webmin-dhcp module in debian doesn't support dhcp3-server out
of the box. see below.

On my newest CD I actually have a custom made webmin module,
webmin-dhcpd3, thaty solves the issue.
Its a workaround because of a bug registered with BTS
I've created a patch, and has sent the patch upstream, and it works for
me. Not sure if it will be accepted. I'll try to upload the packages
with the patch to our local Sarge repository.

There is a comment on how to work around this as well. I guess we need
some debconf pre-seeding.
Feel free to update.

We need to address samba, and see if it's possible to get samba to talk
with slapd with the self-signed certificate.
Also Someone needs to go over the application list, as the the
sarge-based task-lists were created some time ago, before the release
of Venus. Then I took what was left, and removed some problematic
packges (samba beeing one of them), and did some cleaning (kind of). I
think we need to check which packages are still left out.
