Dear Eberhard,

I stepped away from the computer and had a conversation with a neighbor.  When 
I came back to the computer, I could see what I was missing before.  I got to 
the point of confidence and went ahead and continued the instruction.  Wine is 
now installed, and I am comfortable that it is installed properly version 
1.0.1, the stable version, not the Beta.  I went back to his instruction and 
continued.  After installing the Installer, I Extracted  and his script was in 
Kate.  I checked the box making it executable and noticed that ownership was 
steven steven, which was encouraging, but now I am unsure of what to do next.

Do I download e-Sword now?  When it is downloaded, do I just click on the .exe 
and does the installer take over?  Then, are the missing dll's installed 
already so that I don't have to do that?  Is there a source for the bbl files, 
or do I just use my CD?  Should I add font smoothing?  Thanks for any reply.
