	Well, long-story-shory, I set up everything to grab the 
	/usr/X11R6/bin/realplay binary, but *still*, if I click on
	the "Real Audio" stream, Konqueror pops up a list at me
	that includes "Multimedia" and several other broswer-things.
	After I type in "realplay" (or the full path), yes, the
	linuxplugin doees appear. 

	After two hours of fooling around, realplay does work, but it 
	is not fully automatic.  But I'm just happy that using the 
	KDE tools that almosteverything Just-Works!   

	thanks for your help, Dan.  Appreciate it.

	chow fer niao,


	PS:  Someday maybe I'll know enough to be able to write up 
	     a tutorial [with graphics].  If I tried that *now* 
	     I'd almost certainly screw things up completely and 
	     there would be even more dents in the concrete outside!
