It seems quite a few ppl are having problems with getting SWAT running.. that included me... actually I never got it running, cause I can't be assed to spend that amount of time, when there is an easier solution..
As I said in the earlier post Webmin is a good solution. It's very easy to set up if you DL the RPM packet..
Actually you can even log into SWAT from Webmin. But you can also just set things up from Webmin..
