(actually, some work is under way to prompt the user for their setup,
then only spit out what they need to shorten it up a bit)

I just wing it.

Someone else (Ryan Pisani) actually already wrote up a perl that does
most of the stuff after the install, and I said in a thread about 3
months ago that I'd look at creating a kickstart. Never got around to
the kickstart, and linking to the perl seems to have slipped my mind...
But yes, a kickstart that does everything would kick(start) ass. I could
see everything done at install time via the kickstart, utilizing the
%post section. Could even use perl as the %post interpreter and
incorporate some of that perl that's already out there...
Here's the perl:
I know very little perl myself, so if I were the one to roll everything
into the %post, I'd do it in bash.
