	Hello. Look in your socket documentation for the header files and
stuff there are like 5 of them that winsock.h replaces the sys/time is one
of the i belive. You also want to add the sysdep.h and the config.h header
files above and copy the general format that other files have for the
defining of header files. Most of the errors probably came from the lack
of portability programmed into the patch. Like I siad look at your source
code and then make the mob patch look like that in defing ing the header
files. Have fun.
