yes, i would be better off using the makefiles, but i can't seem to figure

as far as i know, i have downloaded all the various files that were 

i hate tying all of you up with silly questions.

i think i am having some self made setup issues. i am going to blow it all 
out and start again from scratch.
will get back to you all if i get stuck again.
