I would be delighted to answer what I can. I am also somewhat new to
GIS, but getting better each day with it. I have built quite a few maps
for display over the net, and set up the map server to send to the net
as well, so at this time, I am a jack of all trades and a master of
none, in the GIS realm.

It prolly makes sense to keep this off-list, unless others want it
there. Even with that, we should stay off list, I think, as it is not
germain to FreeBSD. What I can do, is hold our mail on a web site for future
reference for those who might like to follow in our footsteps.

Also, FWIW, I am setting this up as a test bed on an IBM Thinkpad 600X
running FreeBSD 4.9-Release. It is 450MHz with 256MB
