Thanks. CG chapter 2 starts off by saying that LilyDev has everything I should 
need, but then only mentions how to install it under VirtualBox (which I don't 
know at all) in Windows or MacOS. I'm a Linux newbie and haven't used Unix 
since about 2000 (on a Sun box), so it's all a bit of a learning curve.

Should I be looking at lily-git instead? I'm not an experienced git user, and  
it's beginning to look as if a minor change to three text files is going to end 
up with me being swamped in new software :)

Best regards,
