Perfect :-) thanks
I went to the site and yes there is lots of rpms and debs for 386 and a
tarball of source. But an 'apt-cache show mozplugger' showed it was
avialable for my PPC. Installed it and it works. The only catch is that
you have to remove (the man pages said remove) pluginreg.dat
Instead I just renamed it and restarted mozilla and now xpdf fires uo
from with the browser. I would never have found "mozplugger".
