thing is that when I try to use ping or traceroute I get the error
messages saying "ping: unknown procotol icmp" and "icmp: procotol
I get the error when using the stock 2.0.27 from the Red Hat
distribution and using my usual customize kernels. I have use
NetKit-B-0.08-13.i386.rpm and NetKit-B-0.09-13.i386.rpm packages. I have

ideas or suggestions?
