Hey Russell,

If you have any info on the w2k systems that are showing inconclusive with 
noxscan but are vulnerable according to metasploit that would be useful - 
is the code just [00000000]?  If so I'm thinking it may be timeout issues 
(old, slow/busy machines or network glitches?), increasing the receive 
timeout may catch them.  I run with -r 1800 which is more than 
double the default... maybe I should change the default!

The original version spawned processes to run the tests in parallel but I am not sure if this is reliable -- more testing needed.

I hasten to add that the number is much lower this morning ;)
