Sendmail Configuration

I have installed mandrake linux 9.0 and am having trouble configuring sendmail.

One of the threads referred me to this page
which told me to goto this folder ${CFDIR}/cf
I do not know where the cf directory is I ran the find command
for it and cannot find it. I also made sure I had the latest version.

I just want to know where I need to start to get SMTP up and running.

You are looking for a file called (in RedHat it is found in /etc/mail/). This is the file which produces the file (confusing!) that configures sendmail. There are instructions at the top of the file on how to get the actual file to be generated from the file.

The mc file has many comments in it, some clear, some so cryptic as to be useless, but it will get you started. You can google for info on almost every line in the file for further details.
