Thanks, I'll check that README later on. I know about the 'special' update
program, but I haven't been able to find it on the SLOX box or on the CDs,
and I want to add as little as possible to this box in an attempt to keep it
as vanilla as possible. At one time, I changed the antivir config file to
make use of the update program, but it doesn't do much good unless you HAVE
that program :-(

Bye for now,

search for the string 'Internet Updates'

The answer is 36 lines lower; there is also a mention of a special update
