    i've got suse 8.0 with the kernel 2.4.18 and nmap 3.28 (the problem
    happens also with 3.27) . every time i use nmap with
    -O i get os which are including my kernel. although the message is
    different by nearly each box, it's every time including my os. even if
    i know there's another os on that box.
    i hope you can help me

  2. Could you restate this question? I apologize, but I am unable to make any
    sense out of it.

    It also states an email address to send the info to if one knows the OS of the target system. IMHO it's a good idea to do so, as it increases the usefulness of the nmap product.

    The exact command doesn't matter. while I use the os detection it's always the same

    yeah, but my output looks like this:

    Remote operating system guess: Linux kernel 2.4.18 - 2.4.20 (X86)
    OS Fingerprint:

    but on another box i've used the cammand line nmap for windows (the
    same version as on my box) and this box give the exact output( for the
    box, above mentioned).

    and I realized that there are many boxes, i gon't get the os, but on
    that windows box i get the os. when this happens, nearly the same
    output as you mentioned appears.
