That worked great.  Thank you.

I tried this with odepkg.  Unfortunately it didn't work, because octave
has to build some of the source code.  So what I did instead was to
simply download ode45.m from a web site, and it works great.  It was
able to solve the lorenz attractor, and basically this about all I will

But really the packages need to be prebuilt before they can be
installed.  (ode45 is itself a matlab file, but odepkg also includes
some rather high powered solvers that need to be compiled using fortran.)
