Hi. Sorry for the follow-up post so soon after. I managed to find a copy of the old libg++ 2.7.1 that I needed on the September 1996 Infomagic CD. For anyone interested if you want the FP97 extensions to work with Debian linux all you need to do is is *downgrade* libg++ to version 2.7.1 and it all becomes easy. If anyone needs help I'll be happy to provide what help I can. Adam.
