} Then you can have /etc/rc.conf as a monolithic file _OR_ /etc/rc.conf
} the config directory.

     This is a somewhat interesting idea.  It would certainly make it
clear what the admin wants.  If you chose the directory option, there
would probably need to be a "global" file for a couple of things.  This
setup would need some support in sysinst to allow the user which option
they wanted and to do the right thing.
