I was a dunder head,
I couldn't remember how uncompress the archive under linux, so I ran to Win ME and used winzip. I decompressed it into a shared partiton. There was a problem with chown.
I brownsed the man and lo and behold i found
"Glibc HOW TO"
its for and older version, but I am getting a heck of a lot farther then I was. I should have RTFM (hangs his head in shame)
It still isn't compiled, need a few extras from here and there, and downloading now.
I'll probably be back with another post the the word 'ARRRGGGHHHHHH' in the subject line
Thanx for your help!
