VariCAD is tested only on the stable distributions of Linux. Debian Lenny is not a stable release yet. The current stable distribution of Debian is "etch" (4.0r6).
As to the installation instructions, there are available in the ReleaseNotes.txt file. It is available also at ftp://ftp.varicad.com/pub/VariCAD/linux/ReleaseNotes.txt

|What special incantations are required to install varicad on Lenny? make and install just generate errors. Manual says follow instructions, doesn't say where to find instructions.|

At the time I installed Lenny, it was declared "stable". Lenny addresses both hardware and software needs required for my use. Etch does not, and would be a backwards move requiring a lesser machine purchase. It would be "nuts" to go buy another machine just to run varicad.
Now that I know about the install instructions and discovered that they refer to an outdated file name, I was able to install onto Lenny and it appears to be functional.
Thanks for helping me out.
