 Ah thanks Kevin thats very helpful - i generally prefer to do clean
installs - but I have this one firewall and I am tired and hoped for a
quick and easy path since it has no gui and most other stuff is dead
simple .. i will full install (its better anyway) .. and fixup all the
firewall stuff (bind, squid, iptables rules etc).
