    1.How i install clamav using webmin
    i dont think it works like that
    just install clamav as per your sys and then ad the webmin module and go to the preferences on the managment page and check pathing and settings
    2. yeah. goto the preference link and place in the path - begin at root.. ie... /usr/soemthing (probably) you may need the path only or include filename, it varies and one way or other you get it right
    3. dont know - never used it - never had a problem
    4. none i know of. we always upgraded without a problem except that we need to initiate a stop start from a command line terminal
