i'll give that a try, but i'm positive the file is there. :)

no, the filesystem on the Linux box is ext3.

i totally agree. :)  i've tried to verify each of the three things
you've mentioned multiple times.
i don't know a better way to verify the path.  i've cut & paste the
path into another terminal and am able to open the file in vi.
case shouldn't be an issue since the cut & paste technique should have
sorted that out.
i've changed my entire working directory structure and contents to 777
so it shouldn't be a permissions issue.
i'm really at a loss.  i agree it's weird.  i've used ANT on WinXP,
Mac OS, and Linux; but haven't used it on Linux in a year or two...

any other suggestions?  any other info i can provide that may help
diagnose the problem?
thanks again.
