Many thanks for that most ueful reply. Appreciated.
For my particular instance, that sounds good; I've just done a quick test
to verify it. (I'm hitting a couple of "selinux" oddities, but there's a
possibility that they are because of local oddities here, not necessarily
in the rpmforge packages.)
For the general case (e.g. not CentOS; user installing SA/ClamAV package)
might there still be a case for the SA/ClamAV to be able to install the
"init.d" script (and other things) to provide a consistent installation?
