Nikto seems to have a broken package. I tried using yum erase nikto, then
yum install nikto, just to refresh it if I had somehow messed up any files,
but the same error still seemed to come up:

[root at localhost~/]# nikto
- ERROR: Unable to open config file 'config.txt' (No such file or
directory), only 1 CGI directory defined.
I can't find 'plugins' directory. I looked around:

Try: switch to the 'nikto' base dir, or
Try: set EXECDIR in config.txt

Also, I'd kindly like to make my introduction to the Fedora BugZappers team
here too. Too sum up, I'm still a student and I use Fedora because I love
all the aspects it offers from general administration to security and the
rest. Also, it's blue by default, and none of that Ubuntu poo-poo colour :P
I also like it because the community is more professional and enterprise
level! Hope to zap some bugs in the coming months...anyways, cya round...
