Thanks for your reply Julien,

I've installed Firebug and it has been a great help and definitely 
allowed me to follow my problems.  I have now solved some of the issues, 
I have my buttons displaying now but still not the map.  I'll  continue 
to work at it but from looking through the Firebug details it seems my 
problems revolve around the drawmap.php.  My response from the GET 
drawmap.php?map_session_mode=1 as found in Firebug are below, ie the 
errors with the URL for the GET below

<br />
<b>Warning</b>:  [MapServer Error]: msDrawMap(): Failed to draw layer named 'bathymetry'.
 in <b>/opt/chameleon/htdocs/common/wrapper/drawmap.php</b> on line <b>534</b><br />
<br />
<b>Warning</b>:  [MapServer Error]: msDrawRaster(): Unrecognized or unsupported image format

<br />
<b>Warning</b>:  [MapServer Error]: drawEPP(): /var/www/chameleondemo/map/../data/bath_mapserver.tif
 is not an EPPL file.
 in <b>/opt/chameleon/htdocs/common/wrapper/drawmap.php</b> on line <b>534</b><br />
<br />
<b>Warning</b>:  Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /opt/chameleon
/htdocs/common/wrapper/drawmap.php:534) in <b>/opt/chameleon/htdocs/common/wrapper/drawmap.php</b> on
 line <b>1501</b><br />


Any assistance would be grateful and I'd owe you a beer!
