     I installed AfterStep in a user's home directory.  This is the only way 
I know how to do it.  The only reason I didn't install it properly is 
ignorance on my part.  I thought this was the proper way to install it.  How 
should I install it?  If I should not install it in an ordinary user's home 
directory I guess I shouldn't install it in the ~/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep 
directory, the way I have been told to do, but at the same time I guess I 
shouldn't install it in the /usr/X11R6/share/afterstep directory, where it 
is installed by default in Linux Mandrake -- so in what directory should I 
install it, and how should I go about to give several users access to it?  
The computer is my own, so there is no sysadmin to talk to. :)

                            Thank you for your help
