hello. i just installed red hat 9.0 yesterday night... and today i was trying to install lmme. i did all the adjustments to the *.C files and i even got it to work... i think. when i type in ./lmme in the src directory, my terminal goes all black with a blue stripe at the bottom that says "(offline) <total buddies: 0>" so, i type "/login <> <password>" amd nothing happens. it just stay black. is it supposed to open in the terminal, or is it supposed to be a new window for it? if someone  could lend me a hand that'd be great.
