Thanks Matěj.... The Debian guide you gave me is something I can 
understand. I've installed the pbuilder tools, and begun to test using 
the old BibleTime Debian packages that you suggested. There are still a 
lot of dependencies I need to meet, but at least I can see the 
possibilities. It's going to be a long learning curve, but I'm going to 
have a go.

God bless, Barry.
