Hi folks and Alexander.

There are two reasons, but maybe they are not "good" reasons :-(

First reason is that I'm an admin-beginner with low skills and missing 

Second reason is that the system is brand new but from an 7.4-based DVD. 
It is installed via kickstart and CFEngine from an DVD I created based 
on 7.4. I'm bootstrapping that machine in an environment where it's hard 
for me to have services like DHCP (and TFTP and things like that) 
available, I'm not able to receive a kickstart file over network, so I 
have the network settings inside the kickstart file which is inside (my 
self-apckaged) ISO image. I'm too lazy to create an new kickstart DVD 
based on 7.5. I'm getting rid of the system and 
reinstalling-kickstarting-cfengining it every some days. It's for 
learning purposes.

Maybe I'll create a 7.5 based ISO image and also add CFEngine rules to 
update the system (I don't have a strategie for the task of updating the 
system at the moment).
