You will have to manually fix the rejected files... open up the .eje file
in one window and the .c file in the other, ! means change, - means take
out, + means add.. usuall the sections are split **** means original file
and ---- means modified file.  After the first 2 or 3 patches to stock
Circle this is almost ALWAYS required.

I would do all code modifications in the unix environment, maybe you
should scrounge up an old 486 and turn it into a linux box or something.
