Since I've had a great deal of interest in this after I mentioned both here, 
and my local LUG, I have spent a couple of days adding some features and 
making some improvements to the original script.

The whole bundle of files is available here :


In my latest tests, I started with a clean system.  Installed Kolab from the 
debian 3.1 rpms, and ran this script.  In less than 30 minutes I had a fully 
functional Kolab server complete with the stable Horde functionality. w00t!


The lowdown :

- all major operations can be run separately (download Horde, install horde, 
create the Horde DB, install Kolab customizations, configure Horde for Kolab 
integration).  Most people will run all options at once (I would think), but 
you can run it piece by piece if you so wish.
- Horde is installed in a system web root.
- Horde DB is installed in the system PostgreSQL.
- Kolab is configured for this setup (horde.schema installed, php fixes for 
Horde, and http configured to run on ports 8000 and 4430).
- Horde is configured based on your setup (base dn, kolab administrator)
- All Horde modules have a default configuration.

It does make the assumption that you will create a kolab user 
horde-admin at yourdomain.com.

It's GPL'd.  Share with your other Kolab friends.  ;-)  Any feedback and 
comments are of course welcome.
