Re: Announcement: Java Satellite Ground Station Software Released

	First a public apology to John Melton. I read too much in this
message. I thought that run.zip was the binary version of your software
and it would unpack with the old reliable pkunzip from Phil Kats. This is
not the case.

	You really need at least 3 files that are run.zip and doc.zip and
runtime.zip and with win-95 you must have winzip. From the documentation
you unpack these 3 files with winzip and it should set you up properly.

	I have tried to get jdk1.1.5 from 2 mirrors so far and it has been
unsuccessful. So I can't do anything under this Linux until that gets
fixed. As it happens jdk1.1.5-tar.gz is over a megabyte.

	Worst is that of the 2 guys using the Kansas City Tracker, they
both are not interested in new software. Seems what came with KCT works

	Think I will have another cup of coffee and see if this looks
do-able with my gear.
