Yes. I think I must have misread Matt's original sentence. I thought 
that he was saying he could not think of a distro which was harder to 
admin by hand than Redhat. I was suggesting that Mandrake would be that 
distro, for the reasons you stated.

Of course, when I re-read Matt's email, I realised that I was 
wrong--that is not what he said.
