Yeah I've read those notes over so many times now that I've started dreaming about them.

I've basically learned two lessons:
1. NEVER install grid control in March. No, I'm serious. (Hint: DST2007) 2. Don't try to do a silent install of Grid Control. The installer is more braindead then you can possibly imagine.

I think a blog post is forthcoming...
