Thanks, that's good to know. I just took a look at the site and, unfortunately,
the binaries and source for hercules for Linux are both in rpm files. I try
to avoid dealing with rpm files whenever possible. I prefer tarballs,
such as they are currently distributing in hercules-3.04.1.tar.gz, but
unfortunately this tarball is only intended for the Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)
version of Hercules.
