Please god no...  YAST is one of the worst systems out there.  linuxconf is
pretty close too.

Umm actually Novell seems to be doing pretty good including it in
their server options and I would like your reasoning for demeaning it
in such a way. Not that I do not realize it has problems of its own, I
think too many people simply critisize it because well, it makes
things easier. Personally I can personally compare it to the control
panel and atleast with something like that I could do stuff much
easier/quicker that way and if I was trying to help someone else
(especially newer people to Linux) it would be easier to walk them
through that/document stuff then have them cut/paste into config files
and the like which is in different places usually for distributions
anyway.Ubuntu seems to be building one and reinventing the wheel as
usual, but I would like to see Fedora getting in with a control panel
also and YaST seems like a prime candidate.
