Sounds strange to me.
Any info?

It is a MUD/MOOtelnet server, but of course does not give access to the computerfilesystem as would a general telnet server. Should I be worried? Anyprecautions I could take to make the server computer running LambdaMOOsecure and safe?

I want to update my kernel from the 2.4 to 2.6 series. I do know I will need new module-init-tools but I am still having problems. Do I need new modutils too? Will I need a new version of mkinitrd? When I make a initrd image with the old tools know modules register.
