I believe the only thing I had to do to turn off banners was to place


into /etc/default/lpd.

To get more information about why this is failing, try:

	cu -d -ltty00

This turns on debugging and will probably explain the problem.  The first
thing I would check is the mode of /dev/tty00.  Then I would check to make
sure that the major device number for tty00 is the correct number.

The compiler is complaining because it text after an #else/#endif is
un-supported and may cause future compilers to fail to compile your 
program.  Another reason is the you may have accidently placed code
to the right of a #endif

As opposed to changing the compiler I would change the text to a comment.

	#endif /* #_DEF_LABEL */

Use the labelit program to label a file syste.  This must be done when
the file system is not mounted.  You should also modify the /etc/partitions 
and /etc/fstab files to agree with the new labels.
