Companies who deliver BIND or portions thereof with their product will
sometimes put THEIR version numbers on the package name, or even in the
software itself.  This may reflect the BIND version number + some number
of ISC patches and/or local variations.

1. Please Explain why not to use GENERIC

        My *sincerest* apologies for having the subject so vague.  I'm
administering an application server, Citrix, and I have a question to ask.  The
software that connects the user to Citrix has a list of modems, in which the
user selects the modem they are using.  Among the selections are GENERIC 2400
and GENERIC 9600.  They do not have a GENERIC 144000 nor a GENERIC 288000.  I
know that would not be a good thing.  Why?  I don't know.  I do notice that
the flow control for the GENERIC listings are set for software.  Could this be
the reason why?  If it is, why can't one simply set the GENERIC to hardware?
Anyway, I'm hoping someone can answer this question; being that I'm not very
familiar with modems.
