At this point, and after thinking about this carefully, I'm not sure
the client-only installations pages are really necessary. To me, it
is just fluff. The two sentences that are actually of any value in both
the OpenSSH and Rsync client-only could easily be inserted into the
server instructions.

This has a two-fold benefit:

1. It centralizes the instructions.
2. It removes the possibility of a bug (which the book currently has)
that both of these "client-only" instructions will need to be updated
when book re-org is done. Right now the book mis-identifies the chapter
numbers pointing to the server instructions.

I do think that there should be instructions to not run the smbd daemon
if it is not necessary, and will incorporate this into the server 
instructions.

I'll be posting a message to -dev about the possibility of centralizing
server and client-only installations for the two packages mentioned in
this bug.
