There is no SEUL to download, I had started development work on an
administration tool a while back, then they told me to talk more, and I
dropped it.  I had it to the point of creating new users...

I have a 386dx33 with 4Megs of RAM and an 80Meg HD sitting aside that we
can use to test it.  If they don't want to do anything, we can.  I'll dig
through my Rh CD's and see what's where, we can probably use some of their
RPMs(I love the GPL) to set up the base system, and basically write an
installer script.

Precisely, we could put together a simple .tgz of the RPMS, and make it
install from a DOS partition or floppy using Loadlin at first, then we
should put together boot and root floppies.
