Hi Hsie,

I apologize for not being able to answer this yesterday, but we are
in the middle of our Users Committee meeting.

The problem is your SYSKEY.TAB file is truncated.  It should be a lot
larger.  Here is a long listing from a test Linux machine in my office:

~: ls -alt /data/ldm/mcidas/SYSKEY.TAB
-rw-rw-r--  1 mcidas ldm 24000 Oct  8 09:18 /data/ldm/mcidas/SYSKEY.TAB

Your McIDAS session should be OK after you do the following:

cp ~mcidas/data/SYSKEY.TAB /wrk/data6/mcidas
chmod 664 /wrk/data6/mcidas/SYSKEY.TAB

Cheers,

Tom
