I meant something like: please don't answer me "just patch, hack,
recompile and you can do it"
The problem with recompiling is that I must use ssh in a system which is
not mine ans they would not accept to use a "ercompiled" version of ssh.
Anyway the problem is at the source of W2K authentication as you said,
so there is no such problem...
