I don't seem to have the original message, so by all means, send it along
and I'll give it a shot. What does it apply against? The current kernel
on the box in question is:

Linux rei 2.4.19-pre2-ac2 #2 Sun Mar 3 22:07:50 PST 2002 i686 unknown

although I can put anything else on it, if it's necessary. I've built
2.4.19-pre3-ac6 but haven't gotten around to rebooting to it yet. :)
