Michael--

Thanks for the quick response. The reason I'm using Greenstone on
Windows is due to an apparent JRE problem on my Linux box. John
suggested that it's a problem with my FC3 box's GCC Java
implementation, so I installed Sun's JRE (and Java SDK). Still no
luck, after having done that--I still get the errors when running
<makegli.sh> and <makejar.sh>. I'm considering using White Box Linux
on my next system, which might alleviate that problem, but for now,
I'm stuck with Windows.
