ehh..i'm not using 7.0 i actually have 6.0 here, but impure ...because of
all the cooker updates... but still it's strange that this problem should
happen. my MAIN concern is that when my ppp0 interface is up (yeh, i should
know better, but at least my block my ports with ipchains.) when i tried to
add a computer to the domian it fails with cannot update local security ont
eh nt box. when i ifdown ppp0 then everything works great again? yes i'm
having compilation problems but this is the ntdom list ...

only the core of redhat is stable IMHO. :-)
