Thanks for the info. After talking with them it looks like I need to get
in touch with the local reseller and see about an exchange. Sure enough I
have 1.1 :) Otherwise they can ship an updated CD but there aren't any in
stock at this time.

This is good to know :) Thanks for your info. Hopefully I can get that 1.2
CD soon to do some testing of my own. Good news is the NetInfo server will
work with the old NeXTSTEP ones (not that it makes any differance to
anyone but me, good to know though). Bad news is that LDAP isn't supported
yet though flat file exports work (kinda dirty though). What does all this
have to do with Linux? Everything ;)
