Thanks, Rich.  Now that I have a machine that has more common hardware, and I 
have a distribution running that seems reliable, stable, and works smoothly, I'm 
going to be able to give it a try. It will be nice if OO can do all the things 
WP does, but I'm not going to hold my breath (reveal codes and print as booklet 
come to mind).
