My idea wasn't so well thought. I saw the separate directories for the gimp 1.0 series and gimp 1.1 series. I installed gimp 1.0.4 then changed the binary to another name, I chose gimpl (for gimp light) and its gimptool to -- gimpltool. Then I installed 1.1.24 and allowed it to be gimp. I was able to run both successfully, no problem. I think I needed photo mosaic and some of the perl scripts and couldn't get them to work on the new gimp. I would think that if the developers continue to write such logical code, that you should be able to do this with 1.2 and 1.3. Heck, if I ever get more memory, I might try to run all three, although I don't need poor gimp light anymore.
