OK, I'm in. Now can I set a network interface up without X with any
network mask with any of these products (hopefully the latest one)?

How about two or more network interfaces?

It is just that the curses version of redhat-config-network is poorly
developed.

What about configuring our own rpm's into a grey distro - can we do that
easily, and add our own packages (such as qmail, apache-mod_ssl etc.)?

Is kickstart still used, or is that now something else. How easy is it
to set up ONE bootable dvd with the distro on it?

Can I put the distro on more than one box, or are their user licences?

Many questions, so much work ahead.

Blair.
