To answer both emails...

My first install is Puppet :)

1) I have many clients (schools with Macs/Linux) that could use this 
package. This is in the works - good call.

For the sake of DRP (Disaster Recovery Planning) I automate all of my 
installs on the 1% off-chance that my backups are partially fouled for 
some reason.

2) I used the .sql file that you recommended and wow - it's so much 
easier than expect.

Once I had the right key-words (mysql .sql script) Google returned the 
right pages: Executing SQL Statements from a Text File

The problem I have now is variable substitution. But, that's another thread.

Thanks guys,
