	Please, for the love of god and country, do not follow garbage
	like this.  Under "1. Preliminary Note" is this text:

	"You should make sure that the firewall is off (at least for
	now) and that SELinux is disabled (this is important!)".  

	Documents that advocate disabling SELinux should be tossed
	in a pile and set on fire.  Documents that tell you to
	disable your firewall with no mention in the remaining
	portion of the document to reenable it post install or
	how to properly configure it should join the burn pile.

	Howtoforge, while perhaps useful for *something* at *some*
	point in time, more often than not provides information
	which will either break your system outright or lead to
	tears and suffering before bedtime.


When there are too many policemen, there can be no liberty.  When there are
too many soldiers, there can be no peace.  When there are too many lawyers,
there can be no justice.
