That would seem to make sense.  Better to link to existing pages than
duplicate information and then have to keep updating it in multiple places.

Now that you mention it, I didn't have to do anything with SELinux when I
set this up, despite the warnings on the How To.  Has something been
changed in the set up process to configure this ?
