I followed the instructions from the web site and got it to work under
Mandrake 9.0.  I'll concede that the current instructions are
exceptionally error-prone.  You may want to try running "gconftool -a

getting a GUI front-end for this out the door in the near future that
will make the error-prone manual entry unnecessary.
