i thought about that, but wasn't sure the overall directory structure
was going to stay the same.

after i read it over one more time, it was obvious that this
was the way to go.  thanks.


p.s.  before i get started, one question about XML_CATALOG_FILES.  as long
as this variable has no value, applications will use /etc/xml/catalog by
default, right?

once i set this, must i explicitly include /etc/xml/catalog?  that's what
it *appears* to say, i just wanted to be sure.
