yeah, i agree.
so i deleted all routes pertaining to 192.168.0.* and replaced it with one route
suggested by 'ME' i believe the
route add -net netmask eth1
command did the trick.. :)
now additionally, I am installing proFTPD ... any comments?
and if anyone is familiar with it there are two versions.. and i386 and an i686 version

i would presume that would be a 486 and a pentium version correct?
