Hi,

You may not see it in whatever XP calls the user manager but its there!
trust me. As your using the Home edition Microdollars (Microsoft) just
hides certain users and groups.

What happens when you run the inetd daemon normally (i.e. installing inetd
with `inetd --install')?

Perhaps you can be more specific about this special permission and why you
can't set it.
