Major bummer!

Yea, it is incredible how this kind of stuff happens right at the worst
possible time.

OK, this probably means that the needed /etc/syslog.conf entries havn't been
made; have been made incorrectly; or that syslogd is not running.

>2. I've installed the latest version of McIDAS 7.6 and McIDAS-LDM, but

This is going to be hard to diagnose without error logging.

OK.  I tried logging on, but 'telnet's are refused:

telnet cyclone.natnet.du.edu
telnet: connect: Connection refused

In the future, it would be best to give me a login as 'mcidas' and then
tell me the root password over the phone.

>Mega-thanks in advance.

As soon as I am able to login, I will try to get LDM logging working
and see why images are not being decoded.
