WOWZERS.. I never knew I'd result in such a big fuss..


well I'm sorry I didn't quite understand, what should I do with this file you sent me (approve.patch.txt) ?? where should I put it and what to name it and what to do with its permissions n stuff?


I'm sorry I'm still zero in tghis stuff..


Thanks ..
