Check it out, you will probably find one of your requests :-)

On Red Hat 5.1 (and 5.2), the maintenance mode was not available. It is now reliable for all distribution, except on SuSe where the ability to change run-level while booting is still not functional.
Here are the interesting features of linuxconf-devel:
This utility prepares a module sub-directory. Check out to learn how it works.
Expect to see more documentation on that topic. The remdesk package is currently under development and will provide a good feel for that technology. Stay tuned.
With an onboot configuraion, you can still connect and disconnect the link either using the control panel or the "netconf --connect" and "netconf --disconnect" command. The difference is simply that when you connect, it will reconnect by itself. Further, it connects at boot time on its own.

to make it more standard, especially for the vhost package users.
Note the Red Hat 5.1 and 5.2 users will have to update their /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-aliases to take advantage of this new feature. If you do not need to fiddle with the netmask for IP aliases, you do not have to upgrade this scripts. The new script can be found at ftp://ftp.solucorp.qc.ca/pub/linuxconf/devel/redhat-5.1/ifup-aliases .
Currently, the module does not do much. The goal of the module is to manage the SuSE specific config file (/etc/rc.config for one) directly. Currently, it handles the keyboard and clock setting in /etc/rc.config. Expect the network configuration and few other details to follow soon.
The red hat PPP configuration was part of the redhat module. It has been moved to a separate module called redhatppp. It is enabled by the install script, so you don't need to do anything about it. This was done for users of the dialout module who wanted to remove the Red Hat solution to avoid confusion.
Note that the RPM package now contains some translation. This means that starting with 1.13r5, you really need RPM 2.5 to rebuild Linuxconf.
