Hmmm, as long as you got everything, you should be able to create the  
octree.  How are you unpacking these files you got from Greg?  Reason  
I ask is that Greg sent me that very same monitor model and I was  
able to work with it, but when I first tried to use it I got errors  
working on Windows.  There are linefeed issues that can create some  
problems here, and I suspect that's your problem. I'd send you a  
frozen octree, but I can't seem to find the source files here on my  
laptop -- must all be at work (looks like I'm getting my priorities  
straight).  If you like, I can build a frozen octree tomorrow and  
mail it to ya, and we can go from there.
