I'm trying to address the special issues related to using Mathematica on the 
Linux platform.  I use SuSE Linux.  I hit a lot of snags which I suspect I 
would not if I used a Windows system.  These are typically not all that big 
if a problem _once I figure out what's going on_.  What I hope to do is 
collect all such matters and document them effectively in something like a 
Mathematica Linux survival guide.  If anybody is familiar with gotchas which I 
haven't discussed here 
I'm interested in hearing what you have to say.  Of particular interest are 
the issues faced by a person who is not familiar with the technical aspects 
of Linux and Unix.  What does the former Windows user experience?  What 
would help make this less painful?
