Re: can't locate module tap0 (tap1,tap2,...,tap15)

One of two places: modprobe ethertap or /dev/MAKEDEV.  tapX devices are
for the ethertap module.  ethertap isn't really required, but is a good
thing to play with.  If you know you already have the module loaded/have
enabled it in a custom kernel, then your problem is the devices aren't in
/dev.  The solution is to make 'em: look in the manpage for MAKEDEV and
supply it with the proper target and go with it.

There is an old saying that if a million monkeys typed on a million 
keyboards for a million years, eventually all the works of Shakespeare
would be produced.   Now, thanks to Usenet, we know this is not true.
