'sysinstall' already has a 'Security' menu under post configuration.
Couldn't
we just install from a fixed set of 2-3 different inetd.conf files?

i.e. if the user selects 'moderate [default]' install
src/etc/inetd.conf.moderate
into /etc. If they select 'extreme' install the inetd.conf that has
everything
turned off.

This is a short-term hackish solution but I believe it would suffice until
we
get a GUI up where we can select 'yes'/'no' for every line in the inetd.conf
and have the ability to add in new lines. Good project for someone... the
'inetd editor'.
