		Yes, indeed,   I'll 'fess up and admit that
		reading the INSTALL file on /cdrom did the trick.

		...Still there are some suites that still require
		you to awnser a ./config or ./quiz script.  Still.

		I've run into a problem in getting the clock 
		(xclock and others)  to display local time  (PST,
		where I am.)

		`date' displys the right time and `date -u' gives
		me UTC.  But xclock displays only UTC.  This is
		obviously no major deal, but if anybody has stumbled
		across this, I'd appreciate some tips!

		(I've read several man pages, but no luck.  And so
		far, rebooting hasn't re-initialized anything.... )
