I'm not using the Linux firewall with tripwire right now.  I am using 
the SMC 8-port router/firewall/switching hub with a printserver.  On my 
gaming machine I wanted to have the automatic updates because I thought 
that I would need it.  One the other computers I have tried to register 
the RedHat and it gives me all sorts of errors, from that name & 
password is already used, and others.  Why do they think I have only one 
computer running RedHat when I switched from NT so I wouldn't have to 
pay for a multi-user license?  So one computer gets registered and gets 
updates, the other 4 don't.  I could setup other fake accounts with 
RedHat, but why bother, and I don't know of another way around it.  ~Anne
