I do not intend to use 32bit software or hardware to run GIS mapping or 
image processing functions.  This type of processing is too demanding for 
that.  However, after so much correspondence, I would like to see the 
end-to-end proceedure for doing so.  It may help solve some future problems. 
The command-by-command sequence for implementing MrSID/JP2MrSID support 
uisng FGS would be useful to have.  I hope Wendell/Normad provide it.
