Thanks ... no, I'm not at all opposed to GUIs.  If I knew what I was 
doing, maybe I'd feel better about doing it all from the command line, 
but I'm not there yet.

I'd forgotten about synaptic because somewhere in the first few pages of 
Fernando's instructions he mentions it but warns against using it until 
all the Planet CCRMA components have been installed.  Do you know why?  
Can I just go ahead and run it now?
