Fred - thanks for the offer - however I do have a specific device I am 
targeting. Ebox2300sx.
I have no options on the hardware. It would be a great solution hardware 
wise but software is
being a bit of a pain at this time.

Johnny - thanks for the info. I actually have debian booted on the 
device but then EVERYTHING
is so much different on debian than centos. I was also trying a redhat 9 
install and put a 2.6 kernel on it.
However, I realize this is not the best solution. BUT - to try it out 
and get something working with
the other programs I need I thought that might be a valid short term 
path to check things out.

Thanks guys,
