This is very diffucult to do as not all distrubutions are doing the same
thing and are running the same RAID or NFS patches in their kernel.  So
which distribution should the HOWTOs follow?  The answer is obviously
that we shouldn't shape things after one dist in particular period.  So
I see it as little and expected effort for the person begining to do
their homework as best they can to find out what they have before then
read and assume that the HOWTO applies to them perfectly.
