Also, a word to Redhat 7.3 users: in case you haven't seen it, updated psmisc packages are available (http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/rh73-errata.html). There is a bug whereby if you run ldmadmin stop, it sometimes won't killall (or even any) of the processes. This patch fixes that problem. Otherwise, and even with that, the LDM has never been more stable on my system. RH 7.3 really rocks, by far and away the best release yet, IMO.
NB... do not make the filesystem containing your product queue or destination of pqact entries an ext3 filesystem. You will pay severely in performance.
