Sounds good...

"may" ? or is there any ?
This would be the key for a distribution system.
So i could save the "installed.db" for some systems according to their 
station names und start
an sync-script everytime i change something. This script could be 
started from ssh-bash.

BTW: What is the meaning of the *.lst.gz -files in the /etc/setup 
folder ?
