You are letting Gary suck you down ratholes.

I think you need to think hard about what your goals are and make sure they 
are correctly and fully described in the first paragraph to two.

That will help the rest of us provide appropriate feedback.

Are you trying to setup a good-enough server that requires minimal knowledge 
and minimal care?  (Even that requires some sysadmin attention to track 
updates.  That should probably be included on the security area.)

Are you trying to setup a server appropriate for the pool?

Are you trying to setup a server for geeks to play with?  (lots of logging 
and stats)

What level of geeky detail do you want to dicsuss?  The ARP timeout is a good example.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
