Oops. I messed that one up, didn't I? I knew it was either mib.txt or
radntmib.dll and apparently I got them backwards. I remember running into
the path specification problem last fall and it was related to the mib.txt
file. I had put it into the system32 directory and it worked fine after
that, but apparently sometime after that, I moved it back to its original
location and specified the data/acct directories in the Admin and left it at
that. That explains why I couldn't find either file in my system32
directory a little while ago when I looked.
