  Yes, Iagree that he should upgrade anyway (probably not the kernel
itself but rather use some whole new distribution). But this is now offtopic
on this list.

  Just to make some advertisement for my patch to netstat (Yow! :-) ),
please see:

  This enhances netstat in the way that it also displays program name
of the program owning that socket ("netstat -ap"). You'll find that there
is already sitting some older version of smbd/nmbd on the ports or
that inetd has it allocated due to entries in /etc/inetd.conf.
  And sorry due to technical aspects, this patch is for Linux only
(it patches just Linux net-tools package anyway).

						Bye, Lace
