Who's insisting that IPv6 be disabled in anyone else's system aside from
their own? If you noticed, the only time it was SUGGESTED that IPv6 be
disabled after installation was the first poster. Everyone else after
that was simply asking to make it easier for THEM to disable IPv6 on
their systems.

Anyway, I'm working on adding such an option to s-c-n. I just needed the
Fedora-sanctioned way of disabling it. So far, it seems to be a
combination of adding a modprobe entry and
modifying /etc/sysconfig/network, but no one really seems sure.

Please read the posts again. No one is insisting other people disable
their IPv6 subsystems. Argue for it, perhaps, but respect other people's
decisions to differ.
