My plan was to shutdown the DS.
Then make a tarball of /opt/fedora-ds and several other directories.
Next re-install with RHEL4
Drop in my iptables
Install fedora-ds and verify the OS / performance settings.

Does this sound like a feasible approach?
I am a little unsure if it will break any of my configured ssl stuff.
Which is a basic self-signed scenario using the
/opt/fedora-ds/shared/bin/certutil for the key generation.
I don't think that
will be a problem as long as you don't change the
