Shane,

Nice program.  I downloaded it and installed it on Red Hat Linux 6.2.  No
problems downloading nor compiling.  I am interested in the e-mail feature and
will be taking a look at that.  Right now the only chess program on this Linux
server is gnuchess.

Nice to see some Linux support.

Regards,

Steve
