Oh, my mistake - I was under the impression you got a RedHat .rpm package
and installed that (i.e. you were compiling not from source, but
installing pre-compiled binaries instead.)  Anyway, the routine currently
is RTFM and, if that is unavailable, RTFC (Read The Fine Code, of course
:-) ).  But certainly the INSTALL document is good enough for a mundane
installation ... 

BTW, isn't it true that a version 3.0 of Z-mailer is coming out in the
not-so-distant future?  What I mean is in the sense the Linux 2.2 is
coming out in the not-so-distant future: soon there will be a code freeze
and then it's a matter of it becoming stable enough for general use.

Knocking on wood ...
