Thanks Matt

Sorry for this but what verions of Linux/Unix have you applied this to??

I'm trying to find the files, but RH9 has no sign of KDE2 or /usr/X11/bin
(has /usr/bin/X11)

Normally, I would'nt be a pain, but if not done exactly, it's not going to
work.

With a NW6.5 major install comming, this for me is the Holly Grail, but
right now I'm feeling more like the knights of NI....
