Thank you for the in depth reply.

I am just getting caught up with mail after being away.

As this is a clean install of FC6, I searched for an rpm with no luck. 
The I downloaded the source and found out that my machine didn't have 
any gcc or other tools.  Great.

I will get it up and running and try your instructions.

Due to the move to M$ Exchange Server,
    anything that is a priority, please phone.
