YEAY!!  (No thanks to those deceptive, colon-hating or colon-seeking error
messages.)  Hey, Amit my new good good helpful friend... does this email
address of yours accept kindly PayPal-originated donations?  Let me know.

They're all off except for ng_pppoe.ko and netgraph.ko according to the
output from "kldstat."  Do they run faster "compiled" into the kernel?

I don't know what I'm asking exactly.  Can I safely change these to NO?

That weird tun0, tun1, tun2 problem has since ceased.  I like the ifconfig
command but couldn't get `ifconfig xl0 destroy` to work (kept getting a
compile sort of error, lemme see...

ifconfig: SIOCIFDESTROY: Invalid argument

There it is, yeah.  And I am mildly confused about if there are any dangers
with killing the ppp process, or running ppp to get into interactive mode
and trying to use the "close" command or, once again, does any of this

Now it's time for me to read up on natd, ipfw etc etc and most important of
all, learn how to install just one port at a time rather than
/stand/sysinstall then getting src-all and ports-all then portupgrade then
cvsup then make install clean .... there's gotta be a command above
"pkg_add -r" but below "cvsup" and having extraneous ports in my tree!!

Tarballs are so under-rated, as are mechanisms for getting dependent libs!


PS - Thanks again Amit, early birthday present to me!! :-)  B^]
