Boy I'm beat.

I appreciate everyones help.   I think there were six libraries that my program 
could not open.
Some were in the /usr/X11R6/lib directory.  I copy them to the /usr/lib 
directory.  However, one could not be found (, so
I used the next best thing

The program finally gave me a segmentation fault.

Has anyone out there had this problem? Is this a Debian problem?  Should I 
consider changing to a different linux installation?
This program runs at school on redhat linux.

jeff, that guru out there in rochester, has a program called sudo
(see that groovy signature line -- cool :-)

lacking the program you could just 'switch user'  or su to root
then set up, create, the command jeff described
ln -s /lib/ /lib/
then get out of root
and run that program

i can't help anymore beyond that -- i thought i could help translate though

good luck
