What kind of compilation errors are you getting and what type of complier
are you using, GCC under Cygwin, Visual C++, Borland C?

Odd, I had no trouble compiling or running Del's bundle under Cygwin.

Any additional patches applied to the bundles will have to done via cut and
paste.  The patch command will almost always break after a _stock_ base has
been modified by the first patch.

OasisOLC 2.0.1, the prefered OLC system, has been updated to a patch level
19 server.  But again, after you apply the patch through the patch command,
ever other patch will break.
