i think its a bug in redhat 9 that apears when you reboot.
it seems quite common amungst redhat 9 users...

when i reboot.... kudzu thinks my mouse has been sucked though a black hole

is it okay when you do a complete shutdown and turnn it on again ?

if so, you will prrob have to just put up with it.. (or upgrade / change distro)
but if all oes well, you shouldnt need the re-boot .. right... lol.
