I can't remember there being a unified control panel for everything for
a long time (several releases ago).  There was something that gave you a
bunch of icons in a Nautilus window.
Well, I'm not completely nuts. Not completely. And the other guy saw it
too. That makes two of us. It was some kinda gui which had a bunch of
gui menu boxes in it, like Samba, Named, Printer (I think), Apache, and
a couple more, including network (which pulled up the usual network gui)
and they were all in one place at once in one box. Nifty. A central
server setup GUI.

So, now it appears to be gone and I used the darned thing only a month
or two ago when I was blagging about the network going down. That turned
out to be the nameserver I tie into to going up and down... (the

Ok Rahul, I know you're out there. Come out from the closet you're
hiding in and tell us where it went? I know you know. :) Tell us nicely
what you did with it, and we'll forgive you.
Was this not sufficiently clear?
No Matt, but thanx.

I'm not talking about system-config-services, nor some entry into the
k-menu. There was a binary or a script that presented all of the server
settings inside one gui. Maybe you never saw what we are referring to?

Yup, I've got  "system-config-nfs" and that does work to setup nfs, but
was also included on that system "master setup" gui that I'm trying to
describe that did exist. Jeeeez, this is crazy so I'll just drop it.

One day it'll pop back into existence and I'll say "Woot! Der it is!"
Oh, right. Now I recall later RHL or early FC releases had a "Start Here"
icon on the desktop. Opening it opened a window with the system-config-*
menu entries. There was a corresponding menu entry that would open the
same window.
I guess Rahul has explained where it went and what its possible future is.

Apparently, I'm not the only one who misunderstood what you were looking for, though.
