Jeff -

	Thanx for the offer. I'd be interested in trying it out if this is 
indeed the problem. However, I don't see how it would be unless 
something in quixote or mod_python has got a hard coded reference to 
the python executable. I've got my python2.2 executable in the very 
first path position. Also - for mod_python support, am I supposed to 
have the qdemo directory be a subdirectory of the registered 
mod_python directory (it isn't) or as a subdirectory of the htdocs 
directory (where it is)? I'm not too clear on what kind of 
integration is going on between mod_python, python, and quixote.

	thanx & later,

		Ben Scherrey
