This sounds perfect.

But I just downloaded it, and had aptitude look at installing it, and it 
brought with it a request to install *lots* of other packages, most of 
which appeared to be linux-kernel-2.4-related (I run a 2.6 kernel).

I then told aptitude to *not* install them, and it does not seem to think 
that will cause any problems, but it concerns me that this package does 
not bring with it any other dependencies (that I can tell).

I thought there would be some other ones that it would insist upon.  I 
guess I'm not sure what a "standalone deb" really is, given how aptitude 
makes a big deal out of dependencies.

Are you still confident that it is correct?  Aptitude seems dead-set on 
warning me that you are "an untrusted source" -- can anyone else on the 
list vouch for you?  ;-)
