I have the same problem. I do the install via 2 telnet sessions (1 for
unpacking, patching and stuff, one for the compile, don't ask me why).
At one stage I mixed them up, and now it seems I have messed up group
and passwd files on my original installation. The prompt also looks
different, so the profile's not in the right place too. Damn. I'm now
looking into this little problem, see if I can continue or have to
correct first.

Bye, Eric
