I agree with Quanah that documentation is there, I also think Yan is correct
that the information is not very easy to find.
I've used the Admin Guide and the Faq-O-Matic on many occassions and found
them a good starting point, but not the final answer. I think a wiki-style
documentation where the user commuity could more easily contribute to the
knowledge base may be a helpful thing.
Having said all that, there may already be something like that and I just
don't know about it.
I can start a new thread if more people want to chime in since I don't want to
derail the original thread here.
