Thanks, I got the files unpackaged, by going to the physical location of 
my Linux box (upstairs. lol) 
Normally I do my linux work via a putty client from my windows 
machine... and I don't have any of the nice GUI things available. :-) 
Everything is CLI...

(That is on my list of things to do.... I should be able to run an X 
window on my MS box and be just as it I were at the physical linux 
box... time... time... time...)

Anyway... after looking at the source code.. yes, this is something I 
can correct, so I'll have a look at the post from Stuart about 
installing the source rpm and rebuilding the package etc....
