You have to

chmod a+x /etc/rc.config

from a shell prompt. That will (should) take off the Permission Denied errors.

As for the premature end of script headers, that is a problem within the get.cgi script. You can e-mail it to me at and I can take a look at it for you, but it is hard to fix it, when you don't know what is wrong.

The chmod'ing the file might fix the "Premature end..." error, but if not.. like I said, let me know.
