"someone" in this case is me; I'm shipping the same net-tools that comes
with RH 5.1. Of course, that's a 2.0.34 kernel. I assume there's some
sort of inconsistancy between the /proc interfaces of 2.1.x and 2.0.34.
So, I'll have to stitch that package up. In some ways, we're very much
skewed from RH 5.1 distribution because of the 2.1 kernel, apart from
