After making your own up-to-date Fedora install DVD, “creating a yum repo for installing FC5, prepatched, via the network, is also fairly simple. And makes a lot of sense for anyone supporting a Fedora-based environment.”
FC5 Updated Network install

These guides are really useful – I just wish they could be replicated for other distributions: SUSE and Slackware in particular (hint. hint!)
I just wish more people in the Linux community would create good howto’s that are useful for system administrators and advanced users (particularly with regard to setting up workgroups, single sign-on, security etc), keep them up to date and keep them in ONE central location.
Documentation in Linux is *far* too fragmented – why do I need to check 5 places to see if they have a howto telling me how to set up groupware?
It would be great if someone would also make an easy to read guide to setting up Kolab/Kontact on a network – i’m dying to do it, but there’s so little documentation!
