I've done the last three version of g4l (0.15, 0.16, and 0.17), and 
everything has gone fine. The last issue that I would like to resolve 
is to be able to use names instead of having to use IP addresses. I 
had added dhcpd support for getting the ip address of the system. 
The ping command and ncftp have no problem working with IP 
address, but not with names. The dhcpd sets up the resolv.conf with 
the nameserver, but no resolution. traceroute fails with a message 
about there not being the icmp protocol, but it works for ping. What I 
found so far mentioned the protocol and services files being needed. 
I added that, but it didn't change the results. 

I'm pretty sure it is something minor that I am missing, I don't see 
anything in the kernel config options, but I could be wrong. Perhaps 
someone has done something similar. 

G4L is a disk imaging system uses dd compression and ftp to make 
and restore images. I had almost 9000 downloads of the new 
version in November (iso and source). Any ideals would be
