    Hi --
    I have two issues I need your help on,

    1. We have a redhat linux 7.2 on a pentium-3 machine with 256MB RAM.
    It is in a LAN that has multiple redhat linux 9.0, redhat enterprise
    linux servers, solaris,etc.. I configured NIS and made this client
    part of it.
    The user home areas are automounted. So on a redhat 9 system when a
    user logs in, the user goes to his home directory by default. But when
    I logon the console of 7.2, I get a message that 'home not found,
    hence logging with / as the home'. I gave this a fix by asking the
    user to login as root on the machine and doing a su - $username.
    Surprisingly that takes him to the home by default.

    One more issue I found with this is that when I telnet or rlogin to
    this host, it doesn't login any user, but I am able to telnet / rlogin
    to the other hosts from this. Is there some setting I missed? I have
    made all the changes that an NIS client needs. Infact, when I loaded
    redhat linux 7.2 on a pentium4 system to replicate the problem, I had
    other issues with drivers, etc.
    Pls let me know how to fix this.

    2. We have a RHEL 3.0 loaded on an IBM e325server that has USB mouse
    and Keyboard. When I loaded 3.0 the loading used to hang after
    complaining about anaconda startup. I realised it was a USB port issue
    and hence removed kbd and mouse just after powering the server UP.
    After anaconda starts and the GUI comes, I connected the kbd and
    mouse...I dint get the error at this time and it loaded well. But the
    issue is it sensed the keyboard and dint sense the mouse. How do I
    make the server sense the mouse?
    Redhat gives very bad support, I have complained to them thrice
    already and there was no reply yet. I even opened a ticket and it is
    just lying idle without any support.

    Hope one of you can help.
