[vox-tech] Re: vox-tech Digest, Vol 2, Issue 14

I wondered at first too how I was going to edit a file in a binary file,
in  a bin directory, and I soon found out that it was a wrapper as Ryan
says. So, with vi!

If dhclient-2.0.x corresponds to 2.0 kernels then does dhclient-2.2.x
correspond to 2.2 kernels? Has dhclient not been updated since 2.2 and
is the [12345](now with a 6 too) just a hack in the wrapper? It says
2002/02/11 in the wrapper also. Could that be my problem?
