LinuxConf in RH 71 not there

I load RH 71 workstaion and server to a new machine, everything is pretty much default. I have the gnome desktop instead of kde. The strange thing is that I can't find linuxconf. I would have thought something important as that would be loaded by default.
Am I not looking in the right place or do I have to find the rpm and load it after the fact?
cheers

LinuxConf isn't distributed with Red Hat any more - because its horribly, nasty, and generally evil (as you can see it didn't make a good impression on me)

Try webmin instead, you can get it (in various formats including RPM) from http://www.webmin.com/webmin/

I will try the webmin.
