I just did a fresh install of SUA and debian interix on Win2k3 Server

remembered the problem.
In my case, I was getting cores from perl with some of the dpkg-*
* The FIX:
Before running "ksh setup", either:
- install the hotfixes for this issue [Preferred]
+For SUA 5.x, I believe its 948918
+For SUA 3.x, I believe its in the 913030 rollup [UNTESTED]
- edit boot.ini and change /noexecute to
/NoExecute=OptIn or /NoExecute=alwaysoff
Note: NX bit protection (MS calls it DEP) is a good thing,
so don't use this one unless the first one won't work.
Can we add this to the INSTALL doc?
I have added the necessary hotfixes for 2k3, thanks.
* unrelated bug fix: base-files
base files needs to either check for the existence of
/usr/local/man, or use ln -sf to create the file.
"ln -sf" has already been used, but apparently the native interix ln
can't handle existing dirs with -f. I now simply added "|| true".
