thanks for the reply on this, I'm still stuck.  From reading the administrators manual I think your spot on in that the message should not matter, the problem is that the patch does not install (verifyed this by doing a patchadd -p and showrev -p, so what do I do next, any ideas??

  me right this is being caused by the fact that some packages that the patch   may apply to are not installed on your system. <FONT   face=sans-serif size=2>This is not in itself a problem unless you know you   need that package. You then need to locate it either on your install CD's or   download it form the Sun website. <FONT face=sans-serif   size=2>HTHPeter McLarty
