Ouch! Well, I'm glad you found a way to get going. If you have more problems,
please join us on numpy-discussion, where you will find more people who have
experience with Numeric than here. Just be sure to state up front that you need
to use Numeric because you are on Python 2.2 to hold off the inevitable, "you
should really migrate to numpy," spiel.
