[ Thanks to Sensei for this link. ]

"If you're anything like me, you are dual-booting windows and linux because there are some things you just can't give up--one of those things being quality video files."

"The program I installed to do this is called XAnim, by Mark Podlipec, and, just so you know, I'm doing this on Slackware 7. The tarball can be downloaded from http://xanim.va.pubnix.com/xanim2801.tar.gz"

"Personally, I like downloading my stuff to /var/tmp, but you can put it anywhere you jolly well please, just remember where it is :) Once it's downloaded, you'll need to extract it:

tar -xvzf xanim2801.tar.gz

This should extract into ~./xanim2801 go ahead and "cd xanim2801" and take a look around--you'll spend a bit of time here. First off, you'll want to go into the docs directory, and "vi README.dll" (or, instead of vi, use whatever text editor you like best) This file contains information concerning what lines in Imakefile you may need to comment out."
