I was striving to automate the install of a working firewall using Debian
and ran into problems even getting 2.0 up and running....so I figured I would
R&D the thing and work out all sorts of issues (DNS, Mailhub, proxys etc) on
1.3.1 and then migrate to 2.0 when 2.0 was a smooth install.

Most seemed to be required as dependencys for perl and tcl....the beauty of
doing it with a install, build-configure and strip as an automated routine
is you can throw all the libraries and tools in there you want....on the
front side and then have your strip routines remove them once the firewall

I was planning on using 2.0.33 but the latest one on the 1.3.1 CD-Rom
was 2.0.30 :-(, still haven't figured out how I'm going to handle that
issue...I guess have the install do an ftp....

I can't remember right off what needed this one....I guess that points out
another issue keeping a list of depended-on-by's on each package.
I've got alot more time to work on the project this coming week so expect
to be finished with my first time thru on setting up and automating the
major components then. After that will come refinements and polishing and
a whole bunch of critique I'm sure.
Thanks for the input.....it's vital. hgh
