Thanks for your timely response. Okay, on the first set of
instructions I got an error message:

nicole-alemannes-powerbook-g4-15:~ nicole$ cd /opt/greenstone
nicole-alemannes-powerbook-g4-15:/opt/greenstone nicole$ source
setup.bash
Your environment has successfully been set up to run Greenstone
nicole-alemannes-powerbook-g4-15:/opt/greenstone nicole$ db2txt
demo.bdb > demo.txt
couldn't create demo.bdb

On the second set, here's what happened:

nicole-alemannes-powerbook-g4-15:/opt/greenstone nicole$ source
setup.bash
Your environment is already set up for Greenstone!
nicole-alemannes-powerbook-g4-15:/opt/greenstone nicole$ perl
import.pl demo
Can't open perl script "import.pl": No such file or directory
nicole-alemannes-powerbook-g4-15:/opt/greenstone nicole$ perl
buildcol.pl demo
Can't open perl script "buildcol.pl": No such file or directory

import.pl and buildcol.pl are in /opt/greenstone/bin/script/
I didn't want to go off on my own and do things, but should I change
the directory to /opt/greenstone/bin/script/ and try again?

I just tried running the GLI after that and received the normal error
message when I tried to open the demo collection: The collection
at: /opt/greenstone/collect/demo/demo.col cannot be opened.

What's the next? Hongyan
