First, Thank you very much for your quick reply (Not to mention thanks for
the alternative to using MickeySoft and Apple O/S's -I work for an ISP
that uses Linux for its primary servers..)

Yes. I grabbed the latest ibcs, and done a fresh compile.

(And not using kerneld, I have a direct call to insmod in my rc files)

Oops (not the kernel type tho)- Just went to check my version of ibcs, and
it seems the "latest" version I grabbed was two years old.. I have one

Thu Jun 6 17:21:00 GMT/BST 1996

as the header in Changelog that I was using previously, that I still got
the errors with.. I will recompile/reload that one just to be sure though

(Cant test it until Monday at work - it only manifests itself when
installing/running WP, and I am remote via 28K at the moment)

What _is_ the latest version of iBCS? (And is there an "iBCS" and an
"iBCS2", the latter of which is newer?)
