Hello Again Gents
Well in desperation I trashed my system yesterday......I reinstalled RH7.2 (I know it is crap :) but it is all I have :(
Of course network interface would not come up....appears to be a known problem in 7.2......so I installed RH5.1 which properly configures the network interface and then did an upgrade to RH7.2.......ended up with a working system again! This time I was much more careful installing 7.2 and made sure to include all the development components.
Installed the RPMs recommended here and pulled down the fbb7.04j source code!
I know I am asking for a lot of trouble :)
Anyway long story made short it all compiled the fist time and the fbb server actually ran and stayed running with an available port (netstat -a) this time!
I was also able to connect using the client.....unbelievable!
So onward to try and configure a TNC!
Thanks to all the help from everyone on the list......you all got me up to speed with a one evening effort....this is truly a great list!
I am sure I will be back with more questions shortly :)

That's what I get for doing two things at the same time.
