Fwd: [isf-wifidog] installation problems

Sorry about that, I guess I'm used to more impersonal mailing lists :)

My name is Elie and I am working on a project for OBX/MDCN called CityWide.

In short, CityWide is an extension of CitySpeak(www.cspeak.net) that runs on
desktop computers.  The idea is to have CityWide running in many hotspots
with a defined set of behaviours, looks, and actions that are dependent of
the user's location.  The plan is to run CityWide on the ISF network, and
that each hotspot gives the user a different experience.  We are giving a
presentation next Wednesday to ISF on the project, but I do not know the
details of it yet, so I can't really give any more information.

So, I've been trying to install WiFiDog all morning to mess around with it a
little, and after finally getting all the prereqs installed, I get the
problems listed below.  And that's my story :)
