[Openswan Users] Getting KLIPS into 2.6.10

I had to modify _startklips (in /usr/local/lib/ipsec) to get the system to
auto-load the ipsec.ko module correctly. Use modprobe rather than insmod

This is on a slackware 9.1 system.

Ensure netkey is not loaded and klips is loaded before starting Openswan.
