        Greetings and; Bingo!!

        Slackware's version of JRE is 'jre-6u6-i586-3 - "Java 2 Platform
Standard Edition" '; with the following paths:
/usr/lib/java/lib/i386 and /ext--so we have the age old *nix "Where's my
file," eh?? HI..

        All seems OK except for some queries that I'll work on.. The
main one is that WB5CON keeps asking me to Update my Record and my
clicking on Update Server from JPSKMail doesn't seem to "take," when
connected or not connected.. Maybe there's a delay to update his data

        I suspect other distributions are different??  APPRECIATE!!
