That's because you're probably running the 1.1.59 kernal with LinToast 
0.61.0.  You will need to either get a newer version of the kernal, or 
download the diff file for LinToast for 1.1.59 from the Internet somewhere.
Or, if you're real adventurous, you can try to compile Xtoast, but 
without a screen or mouse, it might be hard to use.

While we're on the subject of running alternative operating systems on 
toasters, I tried installing AmigaDOS into my GE 6-6102 toaster, and I 
can toast bagels, PopTarts, and even English muffins, but when I put in a 
slice of bread, it kicks it back out right away and the power light keeps 
blinking on and off.  Somebody mentioned to me that I might need 
something called a TBC (I think it stands for Toast-Bread Converter or 
something like that).  It's supposed to plug in to the toaster somehow, 
but it has these funny round plugs that I can't seem to find an adapter 
to go to the wall socket for it.  Somebody else mentioned that I need to 
replace my Agnus with a fatter one.  The only problem is, I'm now married 
to her, so I can't change that easily, especially when I can't make 
toast for her in the morning.

I eventually gave up and went back to TOS (the Toaster Operating 
System).  Works swell.  Except now, every once and a while, I swear I can 
hear strange, antique-sounding boings and bonks when it's working.  Could 
be nothing, who knows.

No sweat. Telnet to toast.com. They have the newest release of LoafenLook
as an X manager. You can configure it by doing the following: rye
XAte6Config. (If rye doesn't work for you as an editor, use bread. It's a
little more antiquated, but it works.) Remember...if you intend to allow
remote toasts to access your site, you'll need to set the rctoasts file.
There are help files that can be viewed with ToastView, a ToastScript
viewer for LinToast and X. I would also reccommend getting XLoafer. Last
but not least, if you run out of bread, you can always eat that Magic
Cookie that comes with most versions of Unix.

    All truth goes through three stages.  First it is ridiculed.  Then it is
          violently opposed. Finally, it is accepted as self-evident.
