giFT tells me Mandrake 9.1 is useless

I get this message after configuring giFT in Mandrake 9.1. How do I fix this?

*** WARNING ***

This distribution does not include a client or a network plugin!
giFT will fail to provide any useful functionality without both.

Maybe you just didnt install another package. Try the Install Software menu option and search for gift.

It's OK

That's not a error.

giFT is only a daemon. In order to use giFT you need to install a based-giFT client (an interface), like apollon or giFTcurs.

oh, thanks. They should take that warning out so that they don't confuse people such as I.
