I guess I am not so interested but I would like to see this happen and
would be willing to do it if no one else wanted to.   Unfortunatlely I
can not use any of the resources here at Los Alamos.   So, if no one
else wants to do it, I will go through the process at sourceforge.   Let
me know if you want me to do this and I will set it up in the next few

Do you still need help with setting up  What is the hang
up?  I think I can help.  I set up ""; on a
machine that is actually so I can tell you what needs to
be done as far as web server configuration if you are using apache.  
For example what I did was set it up so that
""; and ""; are
actually the same set of files on the same server.  So for example
" could use all the same files as  and all this with one apache web
server.   You do not have to set it up this way for example if you
wanted to use as the server but only wanted people to
be able to access the web site as or that can
also be done.  

If the problem is that you need a name server to connect with
a with an IP address I can contact the person here that is responsible
for maintaining the name server and see if Los Alamos can add
to its list.   The fellow is always very prompt.  

So, whatever your problem is with I believe I can solve it
with out to many difficulties.
