As Dag and Jamie have differing opinions about how to install Webmin, 
which ever one you choose should be the one you stay with. I chose the 
one from the Webmin website. The main reason is if you run update from 
within Webmin it gets the one from there which can break the one from Dag.

So, if you enable the dag repository be sure in that repo file or area 
to add the line


I've been configuring dag lately using the install file from his site 
which is creating /etc/yum.repo.d/rpmforge.repo

Mine looks like this at the top.

# Name: RPMforge RPM Repository for Red Hat Enterprise 5 - dag
# URL: http://rpmforge.net/
