William: Thank you for that.  I would prefer to do this via RPM, since
it is frowned upon not to, but if necessary, I can go that route.  Our
IPCop box is headless, but not my Desktop.  :-)   As per my 2nd post
in this thread, I am going to completely update my Desktop, before
trying to get Dropbox to work. Lanny
