this you see because the SuperWidgetPackage` makes use of GUIKit`, another
package that is not installed on your machine, most probably because...

... it ships only with Mathematica 5.1 or later. Anyway I think it should be
possible to get the GUIKit`-Package from Wolfram's Website and install it
with 5.0. I have never done that, so there might be problems I don't know
of. It could well be that you need to upgrade your JLink` also...

I think this will go away, once the GUIKit`-package runs properly, but
that's just a guess...

I guess SWP is ok, but you will need GUIKit` also. I'm quite sure you will
find this dependency documented somewhere within SWP...
