Thanks. I made a mistake while making severity selection. My appologies.

Didn't know it was arranged that way. ADSL/PPPOE configuration tool was the
first I saw under system tools. Particularly since modern GNU/Linux GUIs try
to emulate Microsoft WIndows so much, I expected it to find it there.
Infact, it looks like the Administration menu itself seem to have been created
in my system when gnome-cups-manager was installed, there wasn't such a menu
item before. And there is no derth of configuration software in my system
ranging from "file browser" to "configuration editor" under the System tools
menu. It's surprising to me that these are split that way.
I am simply saying that this is too confusing. This is *not* a GNOME problem
but a Debian problem. It needs to be better arranged, IMHO. If you feel even
this email is cluttering BTS, sorry, I will stop filing such bugs. I will file
an upstream bug anyway.
