Thanks for your notes!  Well, ugh, in the 2.2.x branch we've kept the
INSTALL docs up-to-date pretty well, but they've been languishing in
HEAD... I'm surprised you only found 4.

At some point these will need to get rewritten, and we'll have to decide
whether to move to DocBook.  (If so, I'm sure we'll still want to generate
plain-old text format as one of the outputs.)  But DocBook is so nice!

RH 6.x doesn't, so that's one of the standard things I do as I install an
RH 6.x system.  In RH 7.x they make the sym. link during install.

That's covered by this step:

    mysql> replace into user ( host, user, password )
        values ('localhost', 'hordemgr', password('hordepass'));

as long as you flush privileges that does the trick.
