HI Ceri
Thanks for the link... Im having issues with the install of emulators/ 
linux_base... doesnt like linux-XFree86-libs-
Not sure if this lib does the same in terms of linux gcc etc?
I did read that the 10g install goes a whole lot smoother than the  
9i... havent had a chance to really dive into the install yet though...
