Ok, I'll check it out.  But just a quick question - is there an entry for 
Webmin on any of the popup menus?  I've figured out how to start Webmin, but 
only by going to the Webmin web site.  There doesn't seem to be much 
documentation included in the Mandrake distribution.  I checked under 
Configuration, and some other places, but there's no entry like there is for 
the CUPS www admin tool.
