Story so far...

Now, my first challenge, I need to figure out how to setup a default user list -- which gets assigned to every linux box.

Installed my puppet master

I've just installed my first every puppet instance, and I have.... around 0% experience in using puppet to manage my servers. I intend to move my servers over to a puppet managed environment, and I wish to document my journey. Any and all comments are appreciated, and welcome, and you can pretty much say what you want.

I'll explain my environment in more detail as I go along, and I'll also thrown in my ideas and comments. I pretty liberal with my language so i apologise for any swearing, or controversial statements that I might make :)
