I am working with a person who is trying to run a program developed with
Sun's JDK under Kaffe and is having problems (see questions below). I know
almost nothing about Kaffe or Java so perhaps one of you may be able to
answer these questions. If there's anything else you need let me know.

RedHat Linux 5.2, kaffe-1.0.b2-2 (comes with RedHat), kernel 2.2.5

Thanks for the help...
