And it did. Thanks to all who made useful suggestions. It would have
saved time if I had thought to run Mozilla by logging into X as root and
using a command box.
Sorry if I appeared disparaging of all things Java in my earleir email
to dman. I've worked for companies in telecoms where the ability to
write software that will run on almost any server is invaluable. The
icq web service that started this thread is an example of a truly useful
java app. Her Win95 laptop died yet all her contacts and records of
conversations are secure on the ICQ server. With the normal cleint, all
would have been lost. But I still think that write once run anywhere
will always be cripplingly slow for local apps.
Interestingly she and my 8 year old son have moved from windows to Linux
without complaint. Linux on the desktop has come a long long way in the
last 2 years!
