	Yipes!  No wonder no FUD port has been done! ....

	I have a one-line php test file in /usr/local/www/data/hello.php;
	*with* mod_php4, several pages of system data shows up, but 
	with only php4, I have the option to Download or Cancell.   
	This is using lynx.  

	With mod_php4 and pointing mozilla at
	localhost/~kline/FUDforum2/install.php a frame pops up and asks
	what I want to do with the file.  If I "download", the installation
	file winds up in ~kline. 

	If I point php at it from the CLI::

pp 17:23 <tao> [2344] php install.php
<body bgcolor="white">
FUDforum can utilize either MySQL or PosgreSQL database to store it's data,
unfortunately, your PHP does not have
support for either one. Please install or load the appropriate database
extension and then re-run the install script.

	....So, looks like I'm still going in circles.   Got to be
	something simple... maybe!!
