My guess is that you don't really need this file SNMPv2-TC.my at all.
Generally spaeking "TC" means "textual convention" and often times these
are not needed if the real types are all ready defined.  I would continue
to laod your other MIBs.  If you really need a precursor, it should tell

Subject:  [NV-L] Loading Cisco MIBs on NV...

Environment: NV 6.0.1 on Win2k Advanced Server

We are trying to load Cisco specific MIBs for use on NetView.  We have
found that Cisco recommends you load their MIBs in the following order:

We are unable to get past the second file on this list.  First it gives an
error that you are redefining a reserved symbol (DisplayString); easy
enough, just comment it out.  Then it gives another error of the same type
(PhysAddress), again comment it out.  The next error it gives is an "Error
defining object..."

How do you get around this problem?  Our goal is to eventually load MIB
files specific to an Altiga box, but they rely on some of the files listed

Any help/ideas will be greatly appreciated.
