It's not as simple as that for me... we're informal with many types of 
HW and most machines are geographically distributed and administered by 
the users... we only touch machines when they initially arrive and we 
only see users when a problem arises and they come in...We try to 
develop generic OS installations and Python sys-admin tools that work 
for every machine in every location and situation.

thanks for the suggestion.
