Sure.  Newbies should skim the available documentation (FAQ, User Guide, 
and email archives).  These are helpful in answering allot of FAQ/newbie
questions and issues.  For this particular issue, which pops up from time
to time on this list, you should visit <> to 
find out which package contains this library that you need.  Then, run setup 
and install that package.  This approach is the recommended procedure for all
cases where you're missing something you want/need.
