i've finally mastered cfgmaker and templates.  it's now very easy for
me to add a new host.  i have a script that runs cfgmaker.  so i just
add the new host name to that script, run it, and cfgmaker creates a
new .cfg file.  works perfectly.

problem is, there's another two steps.  i then have to run indexmaker
to create index files for the new host (i create daily and weekly
pages).  i then have to edit my navigation menu to include the new

i guess i should complain, its only three steps.  but i was wondering
if anyone knew of a better way to do this?

or any comments on navigation systems?  i have:
-75 unix/linux hosts
-25 switches
-10 routers

and I probably add or remove one or two devices a day
