I hate Webmin period. I like the scripted install though.

Hmm, I like that script also. But I have a slight problem. It or (Both)
should be in Python, Shell or Bash and not PHP. PHP in my opinion is
more of a web scripting language but I'm aware it can used in system
configuration also.

I myself on server installs would use scripts like this in %post in
Kickstart. Keep in mind file servers usually do not have PHP installed.
Python is always there because a majority of Administration Tools depend
on it.
