Glad you got it working.  I recently installed this on a Linux box and it
seemed to work fine (though on a RedHat 6 box).

The "Illegal Instruction" sounds like it's coming from a signal of the same
name, which most likely is due to some sort of dynamic library mismatch.  If
you have any further interest in following this up, it'd be interesting to see
the output from the four commands below.


bash-2.05$ file blast.REAL
blast.REAL: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), not stripped
bash-2.05$ md5sum blast.REAL
c243efc1e2ea2ca4aa5b02c279c81e86  blast.REAL
bash-2.05$ ldd ./blast.REAL
        libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x40023000)
        libpthread.so.0 => /lib/libpthread.so.0 (0x40045000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x4005b000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)
bash-2.05$ ./blast.REAL < /dev/null

Our local university offers a three hour course, College Algebra, which covers
"elementary algebra, solution of equations, functions, exponential and
logarithmic functions, inequalities, systems of linear equations, equations of
second degree and their graphs, binomial theorem, complex numbers, and
polynomials".  They also offer a three hour course which covers Office 2000.
Does this mean that Office is as simple to learn as College Algebra?
