Dave (hi Rich),

Yes, that explains the message about libgen.so being missing.  I should
have remembered that from the same sort of situation here.

No, not at all.

It shouldn't.

You are absolutely correct.

It should work fine.  In fact, our main file server is still running 5.6
and a number of clients are running 5.7.  BTW, I just saw that Sun is
supposed to be releasing Solaris 8 (aka 5.8) this spring.

Good move.

>I'll reboot snowball and twister later tonight after people go home.

OK, I'll try and jump on later to see if the connectivity is better.
