Ahh sounds great. Do you think I could install SuSE 8.0 in my 3 year
old Compaq Armada notebook? The driver problems used to scare me off.
I once installed a linux version allright but never got the sound
working. SuSE 8.0 has a recent python version?

Your Emacs' indenting behaviour is surely configurable! I use vim
myself so I do not know too much about emacs but I did see lisp-like
configuration scripts for it and you should be able to have it indent
your code anyway you'd like to!

Without code it is impossible to guess what your problem here is but
maybe there is one thing I can suggest: Do you always delete all the
'compiled' python bytecode files in your working directory?
I have a script p.bat for Windows for running new versions of code
python %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9
In linux that script would be something like:
you get the idea &:-)
Maybe linux needs 'rm .*\.pyc' just test it first in a test directory
