I don't think that is the main problem. I suspect it is when he compiled his kernel that he
did not properly cp the System.map from /usr/src/linux and backup his /lib/modules/2.2.16 before
doing a make modules_install. Also, for pon to work when logged in as a "normal" user, the user
needs to be added to the "dip" group.
