You da man!!! Thanks so much. I grabbed the export lines from the H9  
Python shell script and put them in my .bashrc file and help now  
works like a charm. They use $PYTHONPATH rather than $PYTHON_PATH  
though. I would never have thought to look there for a solution. Very  
timely help too as I finally have some time to go through all this  
and SESI is closed for the holiday week.

Thanks again.
