            I tried to install on RHEL 5. The thru installation how to, Just doesnt happen. I guess the SQL scripts are not included in new version. Tried the older version (0.16) worked well.

            Browsed through looks very very nice project. Very useful I am sure to like it a lot once i am done installing this week. Addition of Address book, Router/Switch config backup and tacacs+ would make it perfect for me.
