Thank you for the information.  I had a look at the URL that you 
gave (Actually, I had already seen it in my wanderings  on 
internet.)   For me it is very important to hear from the users' 
perspective how easy or hard the installation was.

Python 3 is readily available in most distros, certainly in 
ubuntu, so that is not a problem.  In fact in ubuntu Python 2.6 
happily coexists with Python 3.1 for one and the same user. 

Thank you for your help - greatly appreciated.
