I too have experienced this PAIN!!!
However I never quite got it done, always seemed real close but not quite.
Did you document??
I am now trying the RH / Fedora DS - no problem getting it installed but 
Any pointers to docs that actually work. I have purchased books, read 
magazines and spent probably 100+ hours only to run out of time and 
energy. It remains on my 'to do' list.
Thanks for any pointers.
