Thanks James

Don't need a Hardy machine if the repository database is up to date - a
search on gives:


/lib/modules/2.6.24-16-generic/kernel/net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_sip.ko 	linux-image-2.6.24-16-generic









So it is in several other kernel images apart from JeOS. Just not sure I
can lift it out of another kernel image and expect it to work with the
JeOS kernel.
