Thanks for the offer Phil. Sorry I'm a noob to the process, specifically how
do you suggest we work together on this documentation? Are you proposing we
email back and forth, and if so, do you mean here within the list or

If the CentOS wiki works like others, I'd think the most efficient way would
be to just give me edit access and then you can feel free to
edit/re-organize my contributions as you see fit. I'd be happy to start off
with the structure you've suggested, but I'm sure you/we'll want to tweak it
as we move forward and I've no problem with that.

Do you like the idea of suggesting the LiveCD image rather than the net
install? Lots of advantages and no disadvantages that I can think of. . .

Re testing, I've just been keeping a log as I actually try things out.

Re slipstreaming, search on NOVI + repository, there's a good set of
articles hosted on ORA. My notes on maintaining a local repository and
building custom/slipstreamed installation ISOs are pretty well fleshed-out
now if you could suggest a location for them I'd be happy to post them.
