Hi Brad,

Thank you for the offer to help. What we need is a script that mirrors
the documentation from upstream (for example :
http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5/html/Deployment_Guide/index.html)
to our site (http://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/5.2/Installation_Guide/)
and in the process replace the header and footer with the disclaimer
we are already using. Also images etc should be copied along.

Our guess is that with wget and some bash en sed magic this should not
be that hard. Let us know if you think you can write such a thing.

Regards,
Tim

Hoping the problem  magically goes away  by ignoring it is the
"microsoft approach to programming" and should never be allowed.
