Very good.  The biggest piece of advice I can give you to help
smooth the installation of McIDAS is to follow the instructions
for the 'mcidas' user in the Unidata McIDAS-X/XCD User's Guide:

Unidata HomePage
  Software -> McIDAS
      user guide

The section in the User's Guide that I am referring to is:

Chapter 1 - Installing and Configuring McIDAS-X

  Installing McIDAS-X on Unix or Mac OS X Workstations

    Preparing the mcidas Account

The first thing is to make sure that the LDM on Frank's machine is REQUESTing
the UNIWISC data stream.

The next thing is to make sure that he is including current UNIWISC (aka MCIDAS)
processing actions in a LDM pattern-action file.

Next, McIDAS-X needs to be installed on Frank's machine running the LDM.
NB: The ~mcidas/bin directory should be readable/executable by the 'ldm' user.

Next, figure out where Frank prefers to write the GeoTiff files that will be

Finally, I will give you the pattern-action file action that should be run
AND a shell script that the action will run to produce the GeoTiff files.

> Thanks again,

No worries.
