Sendmail Config

I'm currently configuring sendmail servers to some specs I've been  
given (RHEL).

I was always taught that the RIGHT way to configure sendmail was to  
install sendmail-cf and configure it via the /  
files and then generate the .cf files.  A lot of what I'm reading  
online tells me to edit / files directly to make  
configuration changes.  This would imply not installing sendmail-cf

So this got me to rethinking what I was taught.  Which is the right /  
most correct way and why?


P.S. Using Postfix is not an option.
