OK, I need some help.

Out of curiosity I downloaded ALL the needed files.  14 in all, 45Mb's

I would appreciated some help in the ORDER in which to install these
files, pretty please....

libart (tar.tar)
GtkHTML Library (tar.tar)
libjpeg (tar.tar)

There was one that I could not find and I know how to scour the web
pretty good when I want to:

Font Configuration Library

So if anyone has the most up to date version of this one, a link please.

Most of these files, including gimp-2.0.1.tar.gz are all in tar.gz
format except for the 3 files with a 'tar.tar' extention and I'm not at
all sure how easy these will be to open up.

I know it's going to be REAL fun doing this little project but now I'm
commited so please lend a hand!! :-)

: Well, Mandrake appears to be the only major Linux distribution that is
: not yet offering a convenient way to install GIMP 2.0. So perhaps
: instead of complaining, consider to use a different distribution.
