Thanks, Doug. I now have the system working with no
problems and everything that should have been working
from boot working. I just have to reboot and see if
rc, syslogd, etc. work as before. They didn't on the
last reboot. Probably because everything was giving
me signal 6, 10, 11, etc. Hopefully everything will
just work :-)
Thanks again for your help and suggestions.
