I may have to go the 3.0 route.
I installed 1.6.2 (for grins), which worked; but I still had the
problem that neither telnet nor ssh could be found on the computer
running the restore CD -- I couldn't change control the server to
change its network settings. The information I got from the mailing
list archives suggested that I should be able to telnet to the server
to change its settings. Have I missed something?
