Jeremy, All,

	I installed 3.3.1 in standalone mode on openSuSE 11.0. No problems reading and
writing MS Word files to/from the server with Word 2007 (word 97-03 .doc
format) I pulled level 10's just in case anyone wanted to see them for
comparison, etc.. (Not that they would show anything that exciting)
