And to add yet another comment: I've been trying out various library 
software over the past few months, and I highly recommend experimenting 
using VMWare images. Not only are they easy to set up, but if you make 
mistakes beyond the point of no return, all you have to do is delete the 
image and start over. It's a lot easier than having to rebuild a system 
from the beginning. I wouldn't necessarily recommend a VMWare image for a 
production system, but for scratch monkeys, they can't be beat.
