(This is currently taken care of in the 'make finish' section of the
install, which is supposed to be run as root.  I'm not sure if that was
the case with whatever version you were working with.)

Except for the apparent difficulties with the y2k patches (and the damn
console caps - i think i'm going to wait until the end of 1999 before
trying out the y2k patches...-), it's great news that the pre-1.0b6
install is working for you.  And many thanks to tomas fasth for chipping
in to help people.  This really is the spirit of open source...
