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.
