Well, I goofed because I didn't realize you had downloaded the binary
installation.  I'm rebuilding now and will let you know the outcome.

The problem is that your X server is set up for 24 bit mode.  You need
to reconfigure it for 256 colors.  If you can't get Kurt to do this, 
I can step you through it.  Wait til the GEMPAK build finishes first
