thanks all.  don't know why i went to the list instead of man so quickly today, 
guess i was a little leary since its a large app with so many ties to other 
apps. as soon as i sent it went to man, got it all uninstalled.  Think i've left 
some files around in the icons/graphics shared folders.

I did see the piece about deinstall and actually ended up uwing that instead.
