I think people get tied up with their own distro's glossy config tool, be it
Drakconf, Yast or whatever else. Webmin seems to do more than all of these
and has a vast array of extra modules to plugin for that extra tool you
always wanted. All that and you can configure a machine with a webmin server
from anywhere on the network even if its a different distro or another form
of Unix......However it looses out because it hasn't got nice pretty icons!!

I emerged webmin and then tried to have the webmin featurette go and get
.. err DBM::NIS I believe. It didn't build, but, I think thats's a perl
You can probably find a portage entry for whatever DMB::NIS would come
under and emerge it, else use that perl -CPAN -e shell thing.
I hadn't used Webmin bye-the-bye... why does nobody shout about these
highly useful tools from the rooftops?
Maybe I've just been sleeping under a rock on the darks side of the moon !
