There is a configuration tool for Linux systems called "linuxconf" that is
supposed to be able to setup quite a few things. Might be worth checking
out. I've never used it myself and probably won't until I get to the stage
where I can configure my system blindfolded.

One thing about the snappy tools that has always bothered me is, how would
I manage if I had to setup a system without them?   Just count the number
of Windows users who say "What?" when you tell them to modify AUTOEXEC.BAT
