I did...

it contains some (but not all) of the schtuff that the nALFS 5.1.1 script 
needs, and same with the tarball -- however, the nALFS script is dying 
horribly trying to copy a file called:

"linux-config"  (sans quotes)

which seems to be neither in the tarball nor the wget script. Is it needed 
(I didn't see any reference to it in other 5.0 nALFS scripts I've worked 
with so far) and I'm wondering if it's just a typo...

As such, once I finally get everything on the same sheet of music, I'll be 
making a tarball of both the nALFS script & all of the required packages, 
so it should be as simple as "untar, compile nALFS if necessary, and start 

Thanks, I'll keep plugging away,
