Hi

Many thanks to you (Axel) and your colleagues. I checked the path and of 
course you folks are right. I will take care of getting rid of fink (was 
an older decision).

However, and I have no idea if this is a bug or a miracle I was 
expecting but should not have, when I do tex distribution in prefs, the 
radio button is on texlive-2008. (Now I know about \sw I would not have 
been fooled.) I have 3 dists (Fink, tl2007 and 2008, but I am staring 
right now at the radio button on 2008).

if you are interested, my mac put the space in nealbeck 1 when I was 
moving stuff from an old mac

thanks again
neal
