Wanting to display various shape files (and a DEM raster) that use 
varying projection or that are un-projected on a X-Y grid. The X-Y grids 
I believe I could guess at a few potential projections. The challenge

(would like to avoid booting up windows to use ARCVIEW, GFOSS should be 
at this stage)

Extra notes:
In reference to my next mailing to the list I get these lines when I run 
PROJ from the prompt. Any ideas?
