g, that's too bad. I had initially planned to go with agnula, but the fact I've got omnistudio,
which seems to be standard equipment at CCRMA, made me think to try planet first.  Though this was
all before deciding that the debian path would wiser than the path of least resistance (ie
upgrading to SuSE 9).

Oh well, back to agnula... on second thought, maybe I'll put fedora on my desktop.  In any case,
thanks for saving me the trouble of trying the planet with debian!
