Yes, this works great... thanks a bunch!

I noticed that one needs to call "pdflatex <FILE>.tex" twice to pull in
navigation elements.  Also I need to reconsider and rework the size of my
pspictures, since things don't appear to lay on a beamer slide/page as
they would on a standard page.  That last problem is part of my beamer
learning experience.

Thanks again...
