install *and* configure :-)

Here's an example module definition.  It has to use the uid of root so  
that everything is readable.  Here's an example from a Gentoo box.   
Yes, the excludes could be done `client-side' as well, that is on the  
backup server in master.conf or vault/dirvish/default.conf.

     uid = root
     gid = root
     path = /
     exclude = /tmp/* /var/tmp/* /var/log/* /var/cache/* /mnt/* /proc/ 
* /sys/* /usr/portage/* /dev/*
     hosts allow = IP_OF_ULISES
     secrets file = /etc/rsyncd.backup.secrets
     auth users = root
     list = false
