RE: 4.0pl2, RH Linux 6.0, egcs-2.91.66

Well, I got the beta 2 and it works like a charm, picked up the WHFC client
for my windoze boxes and was off to the races on the outbound.  I've got
some work to do on inbound, the stock config doens't seem to turn on the
auto answer of my usr-sportster (external) and I've got to see if that modem
supports distinctive ring; cause that will help a lot.

Since I saw someone with the exact same problem shortly after me, someone
really should put up a bulletin on the hylafax site for red hat folks.

Thanks for the direction!

You *DEFINITELY* want the latest 4.1beta1: there are lots of subtle
changes in RedHat 6.0 that required tweaking the source. Go to
www.hylafax.org, and ftp://ftp.hylafax.org/
