Much sorry to disturb you by this email.

I am a new user of amber7 which I got last week. There are some difficulties during amber7 installing in the Red Hat Linux 9 of my PC, and I expect your warm-hearted help. The questions are as following:

1> unpack step: "gunzip -c amber7.tgz | tar xvf-" can not be run, my pc displays "tar: old option 'f' requires an argument ".
   Then I did it by "gunzip -c amber.tgz | tar xv-". And amber7 was unpacked successfully. However, I am not sure whether amber7 will run correctly.

2> after unpacking, there is no directory "$AMBERHOME" in the installing manual, which I need create? Or and it refers to amber7 which needs to rename? Directories of "test", "src" etc. in the path "usr/amber7".

3> During setting up $AMBERHOME environment variable:
    Using csh, tcsh, etc: setenv AMBERHOME /usr/local/amber7
    There is no command "setenv" in Red Hat Linux 9, then I use "set" command instead of "setenv", there is effect on successful installing ?

4> After compiling everything, programs of leap, nmode and antechamber can not be tested, some messages display

    cd leap; xmkmf
    /bin/sh: line 1: xmkmf: command not found
    make: *** [install] Error 127

Looking forward to getting your help!

Thank you very much in advance!
