I would rather try and compile a Linux From Scratch system on a p-166 then 
go through Xastir again. Did it once and it took about 6 days to compile 
everything but I did not have to download anything beyond the main packages 
all of which where easy to get..

I have SUSE 8.0 pro and several spare computers what I don't have is a week 
of spare time to spend searching and fighting to get it done. Why someone 
can't host the necessary files / libraries etc is beyond me.
