	Running the install.script is misleading.  It will echo "AfterStep
is now configured" regardless of if it is or not.  As with ANY unices
compilation (or compilation on any other platform) actually watching all
the output is a MUST!  We are unable to help you with simply statements
like "It didn't install", the variables of how this could happen are
extreme.  Typically when one uses a "cheat fast script" and it doesn't
work, they should go back to the README and see how to do it step-by-step.
If you do it this step-by-step method and see an error; this is the error
you should send to the list and ask for help in getting rid of the error.
