I haven't had a chance to run chkrootkit yet. Sorry don't have an
answer. With help from this list I found the program apparently causing
my problems. The problems start and stop as that program is started and
stopped on each machine. A comparison with "cmp" shows the offending
programs are identical to the one on the installation CD. I've notified
the manufacturer and sent them a copy of the program.

I'm not very knowledgeable about computers, even if I use them a lot.
Hopefully someone else will answer before you have to rely on me. :-)

But "linked" sounds like a symbolic (soft) or hard link created with the
"ln" command. The soft link means the file is really in another
directory, and if a hard link, under another name.

You can see symbolic links with "ls -F" as @ is appended to the
filename. You can see where a symbolic link points with "readlink
