Hello all.
I sent a message to Jerry and the list, I see it didn't appear, must have
made an error.  Maybe that's good, I shouldn't hassle Jerry about minor
I've never applied a patch.  What does it entail, I'm sure being a rocket
scientist isn't part of it?   I been to the site and seen the patches, they
look like scripts that can be run, is this the case?  How?  Do I just type 
# ./patchname    ?
Please can you give me an outline of what I must do.
Thanks, Trevor.
