Hi Kasper:

There is alot of code that depends on whether you are running GNU Emacs
or XEmacs.  So, most people have a site defined way of doing that like:
(setq xemacs-p nil) ; for GNU Emacs
(setq xemacs-p t)   ; for XEmacs

So actually, the code is incomplete.  It needs to be something like:

>   '(lambda()
>     (if (xemacs-p) (gnuserv-start)
> 	(server-start nil))))
