hi,  well I think im getting closer here, thanks for the tip.  but, now
its looking for vloopback kernel module, and says its not available.  I
think thats what gets installed when your suppose to run the "sudo make
install" that fails.  but.., all is not lost, I see there is an email in
the readme file, I think Im going to fire something off to the developer
to see if we can figure this out.  What do you think Daniel, can you
help us out on this one?  Thank you.
