Having just installed FreeBSD on a couple of machines I have
to say Jordan's setup program is pretty neat and useful.
Prior to that I hadn't even played with FreeBSD in ages so I
was quite blown away when installs went so painlessly.  I
hope there is enough cross-pollination of hacks/ideas
between the two camps.

What would be really cool is a set of install, setup,
config, sysadmin tools using HTML as its surface language
so that help is well integrated, you can chase links around
while filling forms etc. and the same info. is accessible
later.  Install/setup prog. can be a simple, special purpose
ascii only browser with some hardwired logic in it.
