gnome panel problems

Thanks for your help.  However, no progress.  I installed gnome-core and no change (except now my Mozilla won't work! I was going
to upgrade anyway ...)

Yes.  Also, typing the command in a terminal works

I'm using kdm at the moment, attempting to install gdm (see
'gdm:through to the next round').

I think this is where the problem is.  The xalf message is triggered
by using the panel for one of these non-launching apps.  Is xalf
blocking me launching apps?  I notice my old version og Gnome (1.0, on
SuSE 6.4) didn't have xalf: is xalf necessary, and if not how can I
get rid of it?  If it is, any ideas on how to fix it?
