[MonetDB-users] Installation Problems

Precompiled binaries... now that's a beautiful thing.  With the
knowledge that the jars are available pre-built, I was content to
proceed with the installation without building the jdbc driver.  I've
now managed to get the basics up and running (ie, start merovingian,
create demo database, start demo database, login using mclient).  I
was not immediately able to get a graphical client working, but that's
a challenge for another day I think... I should have more time to play
around with this over the weekend.

Thanks so much to everyone who helped me get going.
