Thanks again.  For now it is kind of just a test box, but these are the
things that I want to know because I will eventually go live with it.  If
Webmin is insecure, then I won't mess around with it much.  I'll spend the
extra time with the configs.

There's a reason Webmin isn't in the Ubuntu or Debian repositories: it's
very insecure. I don't recommend it at all. Rather stick to editing the
config files, it's not that dofficult.
