It would help if you'd specify exactly where you put things, as the correct locations differ from platform to platform. On Mac, BibLaTeX should go in ~/Library/texmf/.... (Make sure you put the biblatex.bst file in the bibtex/bst/ directory, and everything else in the tex/latex/ directory.) Make sure you do texhash (not "rehash" as you say above); sudo texhash is not necessary to update files placed in this directory. On Mac, Modules should go in ~/Library/Application Support/LyX-1.6/layouts. After that, reconfigure LyX, restart, and the module should appear in Document > Settings > Modules. If you've done all this and the module still doesn't appear within LyX, try downloading the module again and reinstalling (perhaps it got corrupted somehow). Bennett
