Right.  This was my attitude as well.  Although I'm a bit confused 
how cfengine would get update.conf to a machine where nothing 
is running yet.  If a machine is brand new to the network, is my 
only option to copy update.conf from the source policy master 
to the client manually?  At that point, I'm guessing if I have a 
entry in update.conf where cfagent is specified to start like so:

processes:

  new_cfenvd::

    "cfenvd" signal=kill restart "/var/cfengine/bin/cfenvd -H"

cfagent should grab the cfagent.conf file from the policy master?
Or, do I need to go read up some more?

Thanks a ton,
Paul
