BTW, how may persondays it would require on a Centos 5.7 box to
master? I have squandered away about 75% of available time (of about 2
person days). Amanda, IMHO, requires about 1 person week to deploy
initially and about 2 person weeks to get sign-off: am I right about
it? or am I inefficient (the "in about 15-minute" is a myth with
Centos 5.x maybe truth with Centos 6 -- I dunno)?

There is a External NTFS partition which will be carried away and the
whole shop is powered off at about 2000hrs.

With warm regards and best wishes,
