#### Other Notes

For a server setup (system capable of hosting Rivendell client machines that share the server's database and audio store), start the script with the command:

/root/install_rivendell.sh --server

For a pure client setup (one that uses a central server for the database and audio store), first create a host entry for the new client in RDAdmin on the server (RDAdmin->ManageHosts->Add), then start the script with the command:

/root/install_rivendell.sh --client
