Save your config!

Suppose you have a remotely accessible serial console device, such as a Cyclades. When you make changes, it's really a Good Idea to run saveconf, as otherwise all changes are lost if the machine reboots (for example b/c the power is disconnected). It's also a good idea to keep the important configuration files under cvs control, so they're (a) available on some other machine and (b) you can track the changes.
