Worked, thank you!

Of course, a such resource DB should be wonderfull to have also in Linux.
I'm saying an eresy, I know that.
What we have in muLinux (under /setup), or in RedHat/Mandrake (under /etc/sysconfig),
is a caotic version of that DB.

In Mandrake, for example, there is a lot of Configuration Tools that
uses to interfer with user's changes in /etc and in /etc/sysconfig, etc.

A true caos, let me say!

The same happens sometimes with MU.
I go in /etc/sysconfig and change something. After that, If I use some
Mandrake conf-tools, all values gets disaligned.

A true caos, let me say ...

Becoming Linux always more complex, I think a centralized DB for
resources is necessary.
