    I noticed after suping (10/18) that the i386 GENERIC had options
NETATALK on, so I figured after installing this kernel I'd try
installing the userland code.  So I grabbed the sources from, compiled them and installed them (without kerberos or
AFS support until I get a afpserver principal password).  When I try
running rc.atalk, this is what I get:

starting appletalk daemons:AppleTalk not up! Child exited with 1.

Oct 20 12:41:02 Warp afpd[6731]: Can't register Warp:AFPServer@*

    Any idea why atalkd would say that AppleTalk wasn't up?  I did add
the netatalk services to my /etc/services, although there is an echo at
7/tcp & 7/udp, and now an echo at 4/ddp.  I wasn't sure if this was a
problem, so I commented out the echo 7's, and still get the above error.

    I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions.  Thanks!
