  not entirely.  keep in mind that this is an *admin* course for
RHEL/centos so any additional topics should be primarily
server-oriented.  that suggests that things like multimedia would have
little value.  heck, even graphical utilities might be irrelevant
since, as a server, the system might not even have X installed.

  so, yes, i realize this is still being a bit vague.  i'm just
interested in what others have found as being really, really useful in
the context of setting up a server.
