I ran through DIAGNONSIS.txt again.
I seem to have problems with test 5 and test 8.
The solutions for test 5 are non-existant... which is sorta annoying. And as
for test 8 I've done the lmhost thing to resolve the problem but it still
doesn't work... which makes me believe that test 8 is dependant on test 5.
I need to back stuff to my FreeBSD box so that I can do some reinstalls...
anyone have ANY ideas... maybe a less problematic (for me anyways) alternative
