Yes, the first time that you authenticate, you might get a blank screen.

The cgi will need write permission to create the cookies, updates, etc.
Since these are all text files, you can see if these updates are actualy
being added to the text 'update' file or not. See the instructions in the
webnocol.cgi file.

#       - Create a null $updatesfile $cookiefile and ensure that both are
#         writable by httpd (or owner of your web daemon).
#  etc. etc.

The updates will show up in the web pages the next time genweb.pl runs from
your crontab.
