Thanks Zan.  I was kinda afraid of this answer.  It's
the part of linux I don't love.  I guess with infinite
flexibility comes a pretty large complexity.  I may do
what you suggest but for this and other reasons I'm
also thinking of just installing a current linux
distro on another hard drive to play with this
particular application.

I'm not looking to start a religious distro war but
what distros do people think would be good to support
current QT?

Thanks, Dan
