Hum, since lots of recommendation on warewulf, I decided to give it a 
try. First impression is... wow, it is for SL6.2 and mine is SL6.3, 
should be very similar. Unfortunately after giving it a try, I realized 
that the article is a little bit old. For example, the repo download 
link should be

# wget http://warewulf.lbl.gov/downloads/repo/warewulf-rhel6.repo -O 
/etc/yum.repos.d/warewulf-rhel6.repo

Anyway, no big deal. I got everything as instructed until the step to 
create database using setup.sql:

[root at localhost ~]# mysql warewulf < /usr/share/warewulf/setup.sql -p

but unfortunately there is no setup.sql there. Setup.sql was removed: 
http://warewulf.lbl.gov/trac/changeset/1053#file0.

Any advise how to proceed?

Thanks,

D.
