    Woa.  That was weird.  Sorry about the From: line.  In anyacse,
    when I posted the 'sh' idea I totally forgot that we have php4 
    available, and some truely powerful things can be done in php4.

    I believe that the actual backend control... installation of rc
    variables, starting and restarting subsystems, and so forth, should
    still be done by the RCNG scripts.  The more I think about it though
    the more I like the idea of using PHP4, Apache, Lynx and/or a graphical
    browser as the basis for the user installation code.

:    Also, we could use php4 to drive the installation process and have it
:    run scripts and access a temporary (or whatever) database.
