Thanks.  I've gone ahead and built 3.0.26b for the platform, so 
hopefully that will work better.

One more question:

Is there a CLI-based window shares "sniffer" anywhere?

I will be sending this unit out to places where there is no admin.  I 
need to be able to compose a list of shares and machines, and then back 
up those that the local users want backed up.

I'm looking for something like windows neighborhood in text mode - 
something that would list the machines on the local subnet and their 
shares. ISTR something like that but I can't even remember where to look.

Linux stuff has made big progress over the competition. When things sit and don't start right away, we have a watch, and those poor guys have to settle for an hourglass.
