I think I asked the wrong question.  I'll have to look at things some more. 
What you gave me resulted in far more than I was looking for.

I think I really hosed the code for generating that table.  I used 5 lines.  
I probably didn't need more than two, but I'm too tired right now to think 
about it.  Mathematica is totaly awesome when it comes to what it was intended for.  
They really need to rent a Troll for a few months and fix this interface.  
Qt will run on just about anything.  Heck, my Win-XP partition runs 
XFree86, with the KDE, or it did when I booted into XP a month ago.
