 If somebody will start such a project please cc me since I'm interested
to help.
Well with testing and writing documentation since my programming skills
are kinnda missing(except for some basic shell scripting).:-)
 But I definitely think that we need a project that will do a quick base
and leave all the configuration for afterwards.At least that's my idea
and I planned to start modifying the dbootstrap in this regard the
coming week,now that TestCycle3 CD is out .I planned to use this to make
an install for a firewall for
home use where you don't need to much except for the base and maybe
dial-up,ISDN,PPoE .I did a base install+dial-up at work and all I needed
extra was
the firewall script.
 Ofcourse if somebody more knowledgeable will start a project that will
do exactly this I'd rather help with what I can.
