 What's interesting is that I grabbed Slang 99-36 from and 
after I typed 'sh ./configure', it found the CC at usr/bin/cc and then 
compiled with no problem. When I try to install it, I recieve a 
"permission denied" error since the CC is trying to install it in usr/bin 
which is off limits to GIANT's users. That shoud be easy to fix just by 
changing the installation Path to my Home directory. 
Maybe that's why Lynx won't compile as well. Also, on a whim I typed 
"uname" at the unix prompt and received "UNIX_V" in response. 
I'm going to attempt to make Lynx2-6 under "svr4" or "sco" and see what 
happens. I also grabbed the autoconf. files just in case. If this fails, 
then it's time to bug the SysAdm's and ask them what is the "nature of 
the beast". 
What a wonderful ThanksGiving day! =}
To get an idea of what I'm working with, GIANT has a WWW site at 
"" that lists it's certifications and specs. I'm not as much 
as a computer guru as I used to be, but it did give me some ideas.
I'll let you know the results of my "trial and error" spree.
Thanks, and Happy ThanksGiving!
