What you've done so far looks right to me...although the error you're
is rather odd. Are you sure your kernel has bpf in it?
The problem might be UAR...I seem to recall needing UAR to get CAP to work
on "unsupported" machines (i.e., not SunOS). UAR is Unix Appletalk
basically if you don't have a network with a router that grok's appletalk
