    Okay since I last wrote about messing up my server with a Chroot jail, things have definately changed.

    I installed RH9 and put it on an IBM Netvista 866 w/384Mg Ram /proc/kcore shows 401477632 Oct 28 11:53 /proc/kcore..... Vs RH8.0 on a junker 450 w/320Mg Ram

    All is running well but I do have one question.....maybe it was this way in RH 8.0, I never noticed, but I'm pretty sure I would have noticed an open errant port not assigned to anything.

    netstat -taup shows a UDP port open by XINETD (BY the way, I"m not running anything with xinetd).......I first noticed it because the CHKROOTKIT bawled out an alert when the XINETD port was running on 1008 ... now it's on 923....has been on 979.....etc.....moves when I restart this the result of running xinetd as xinetd -stayalive -pidfile /var/run/
    thus keeping a UDP port open to support the PID?????
