I am very happy to announce that I am now an official Linux user.  I got
my debian system up and running with the 2.4.15 kernel yesterday and so
far am loving it.  I've got a question though.  Whenever I use PINE, I get
a message that says "mailbox is vulnerable.  /var/spool/mail needs 1777
protection.  For one, what does that mean?  And lastly, how do I set that.
Thanks in advance for any info.
