ya, sorry i diden't specify, i'm trying to build a simple RSS (haha, fat chance it being simple, right?) reader for a site to import an ebay RSS feed and desplay the contense. I'm using Magpie to accomplish it. also, you'll be glad to know that your fix worked like a charm, all i need to do now is limit the number of results and orginize all of the data returned (images and such). my only curiousity about this now is what is up with that file path.... why woulden't using the URL work?
