I think I've gotten much of the way there. I've done everything up to 
instruction 7, "Install the desktop integration features for your setup.
...and depending on your package manager/system, install the appropriate 
desktop interface using RPM." Now I'm stuck.  The choices are
freedesktop-menus     mandriva-menus     redhat-menus     
suse-menus         I am running PCLinuxOs, which is derived (some time ago)
from Mandriva, so should I use that?  My package manager is Synaptic, my 
desktop is KDE.  Please advise.

Thanx for your assistance.  --doug
