Thanks Rudi

I was planning to sharpen my Ubuntu-foo with this project, but wouldn't
mind if a shortcut exits.  SME and RedWall is based on other distros, so
its not quite what I was looking for.

eBox surprised me however.  I know you could previously download it as
an add-on to Ubuntu server which only worked partially.  I played with
it but I wasn't too impressed.

Now I see it is available with its own ISO's.  It looks like its still
Ubuntu based and uses tasksel for installation of preconfigured modules.
Even the user interface looks like it has been improved. 

Wow!  I think I'll give it another go

The really interesting question would be if you could install 
eBox (www.ebox-platform.com) on an eBox
