That's a shame.  I have a client running a RHEL 4/Thinstation thin
client system for about 20 users.  Sabayon would be a great way to
create and maintain profiles for them.

I'll give it a shot, and let you know how it goes

I'm a little confused as to how I'm supposed to create profiles on, say
Fedora Core 4, and then push them out onto a RHEL 4 server.  I've read
that gconf is supposed to be backwards and forwards compatible (in as
much as new keys won't break apps on systems running older versions of
gconf), but I don't know if that's truly the case.

How does one actually use sabayon-apply?  There's no man page, and I
haven't found any documentation.  I guessing I'm supposed to specify the
profile and the user I want the profile applied to, so:

sabayon-apply profile user

Is that right, or am I completely off?

Although I've created profiles with Sabayon, I haven't actually tried
applying them, so I'm a little lost.

One last thing: I see that you copied the sabayon list when you replied.
I, however, haven't seen any new messages posted to it.  Is the list
still up?
