	I can get thunderbird 3 loaded now but it reverts to 
thunderbird 2.0.0. I think I need to link that directory with 
thunderbird 3.0.1 software to the thing that starts thunderbird.

	But not in a great hurry to do this since thunderbird 3.0.1 
does NOT pick up my address book or the many things I branch 
off of Inbox. It will be a real pain writing all those again.
