That is really quite an old version of FSBD. If possible, I think you
would be well served by updating to the latest version - 6.1 - if
I may be wrong, but I do not believe that there is a lot of support for
that version anymore.
I wish i could, but i dont have physical access to the machine - its
in a remote location with no serial console. So if anything gets
messed up during an upgrade, im in a hell of a lot of trouble.
I dont know when i'll be able to fix this problem so until i can upgrade
the OS i at least want to keep the rest of it up to date.
Do you Yahoo!?
