I did get around to trying to download gsl on the Debian laptop. It was successful so far. I first used konqueror to browse www.gnu.org/software/gsl. Then I used a Konsole window to ftp the software to the laptop from ftp.gnu.org. I then used Archive to unpack it to the Desktop. I read the README file and then the INSTALL file, just clicking them open in Konqueror. I used the cpmmands ./configure and make in the Konsole window when in the gsl-1.7 folder that unpacking made on the Desktop. Now the make is taking a long time, but the gsl-1.7 folder is big tens of megabytes and this is a pentium 1 computer so I am just going to have to wait.
