Thanks but I think my problem is that the SO5 I have is a givewaway cd that
came with a UK magazine. That seems to be the reason it will not compile on
SuSE 6.0. Certainly you should expect the version that came on a commercial
version of SuSE 6.0 to work and I'm sure you'd rightly be prety p'd off if it
Roy Culley has suggested downloading 5.01 which is said to be compatible with
SuSE 6.0. As a a born cheapskate, I guess I'll try that route first before
thinking of buying more cds.
