Pascal, Marc,

Thanks so much for replying, especially so quickly, and I apologize for my 
rash assumption.  You were right of course, I was using the buggy 13 and I 
upgraded to your 14. Things are much better now.

I still have a dependency problem that I am unable to solve quickly but I will 
ask on SuSE-e list about that.

Again, thanks for your support, and I think I can speak for a lot of the SuSE 
people. You cannot even imagine how much your efforts are appreciated.

Regards to you all and please keep up your good work. You keep the clueless 
people out here going in spite of their ineptitude.

Bob S.
