Hello Jeremy,

We are trying to do get SLIC installed at Lyon (France), and with your new instructions we run into a problem on a Scientific Linux 5.8 (Boron). We get an error that OSDetect is not defined.

Can you please suggest how to go forward, or how we can resurrect the old SimDist?

Best,
	Maurik
