The CGD chapter is in there, I think it should do, but if someone sends me
some useful comments I can make a new version and send it to Jason or Jan.

I think it would be a good idea to split it in at least three chapters:
* IPv4 and IPv6 theory and practice
* IPFilter (as far as I know there is only ipnat documentation in
chap-net, so a basic introduction to ipf still has to be written, I could
have a look at it if I find some time...)
* NFS/AMD (should really be a seperate chapter, just like DNS and Mail are
in seperate chapters)

Maybe the chapter can be revised without screenshots? They are quite
bandwith intensive for modem users and I think they are not needed if the
documentation of each part of the installer is OK. I wouldn't mind to
revise the installation *if* screenshots are left out. I still have a
-current snapshot CD-ROM lying around somewhere and could update the
instructions with it.
With kind regards,
