i was installing the 351 engine on a sles 882 box. earlier i had been
moving the master or root around and it ended up on an old netware 881
server. although he had master of root,,he was not listed in W0 as a key
server since only until 882 do all servers in netware get listed, and this
server was not the first install--so he didnt have it.

the install failed with an nmas validate error, even though the sles box
had a rw of root and was listed in W0.

after moving the master back to a server that was listed in W0,,the
install worked fine with no nmas error. under the covers someting in the
install must prefer talking to the master.

anyway,,just some information.
