No ncurses needed? I have not looked at this as it is a 1.1MB download
which would take me 20 minutes. The static version is not the latest, it
is at least 2 years older. There seem to be changes to the MP3 format
which keep mpg123 from working at some sites so newer would be better.

A libc5 version should work in BL2 since I already added libc5 for
netpbm. (But in my experience lynx compiled completely statically refused
to work online until I gave it glibc6. Worked fine offline.)
I don't think there is much point to my getting a better mp3 player
without a better ISP. My 'faster' ISP (the one that does 24K with a few
blips) is also free (10 hours/month) and probably overcrowded. The
unlimited free account (at a local community college) did not even work at
24K. I wonder if paying $5/month (no webspace or telephone support) would
provide a faster connection. It is getting a bit annoying to download
programs at a fluctuating 0-2.7K and get bumped off after 62 minutes and
not be able to access google (lynx times out and starts looking for
www.google.com.edu) after 4 pm.
Last time I tried Realaudio it was with a paid ISP. I should put BL3 and
an MP3 player onto the parport drive and try it out on someone else's
connection. I have glibc 2.2.5 in BL3 for use with xpdf and opera and
I can simply copy over the BL2 mpg123. I will up the .img size to 60MB.
I would probably also need an external 56K modem. A neighbor with linux
is also shopping for a cheap ISP.
The neighbor next to the one with the 'dead' computer is also interested
in linux. They both have university accounts and only want to browse, do
email, and write letters.
