I've been looking thru init.m files and I'm wondering what sort of things you had to change. In my search thru HELP on init.m files, it just mentions things like loading packages. I presume that if/when I load V6 I will be allowed the choice to install it in a separate directory -- seems like when I went from V4 to V5 I wasn't given the chance -- or I just missed it. In any case V4 evaporated which I was trying to prevent. Regards, Rob
