What package am I missing in FC6 that I don't have Server Settings in the

system-config-services

'tis both the name of the program you run, and the package.

I have that one, but system-config-services is essentially a frontend for
chkconfig (sort of). I'm talking about the gui where you configure NFS,
HTTP and other services. The one that is in the gnome editor (alacarte)
but you can't enable it.

I know exactly what you are referring to, but I cannot find it either.
It had all of those services and a bunch more to configure in one gui.
It seems to be gone and I used it only a month or so ago.

I figured it out. You actually have to install some server config tool such
as e.g. system-config-nfs (which I wanted). Then, you will have System ->
Administration -> Server Settings with whatever server config tools you
have. Kinda makes sense. That's why I don't trust guis, because if
something goes wrong you have to dig under the hood.

The gear icon in System -> Administration is system-config-services. It used to be in a submenu called Server, but if that's the only entry, the submenu is disabled. You can force-enable the sub-menu by right-clicking on the menu bar around the menu and selecting Edit Menus. Or, as you discovered, if you actually have a syetem-config utility for a server app, the submenu will be automatically enabled. But you have to install the system-config utility for each service you want. A complete list of system-config-* packages is:

Of course, not all of these make entries in the submenu.
