FWIW sysinst doesn't do a load of config stuff that really ought to be done.
It doesn't even ask for a hostname!
uh, it sure does. see net.c:MSG_net_host... it also writes it to
the rc.conf file if it didn't get it from dhcp.
Never mind sorting out the 'owner' user - to send all these security
report mails to. After all we recommend that you never log in as root,
so sending mail to root is not dissimilar to sending it to /dev/null.
heh. we recommend not logging in directly as root - not to never
become root ;-)
