In that case it seems like the world would be a nicer place if
you could mix-n-match things from different distributions easily.
Unfortunately it isn't all that easy. I'd like to have a system
where everything knows about shadow passwords, the ndbm emulation
uses gdbm, and a one-disk nfs installation works the first time.

I tried several times (over NFS) and it never completed. That was
probably a month ago - perhaps it is fixed now, but I have RedHat
loaded. I'll try again on the next machine if shadow support is
available by then. What I'd really like is the ability to load
.deb's into a redhat or slackware base.
