Did you read my post? I'm not having a permissions problem. The line ./configure --enable-lzw=yes --enable-shared=yes --disable-static --without-perl wouldn't run because I was trying to install 6.1.5 not the version that ARE in your instructions. That's the only time I got an error like that.
Here is my main question as it seems it is the main problem.
Where in telnet do I type the "make clean" command (as in what directory) and what exactly does it do, just remove imagemagick? Is it going to ask any questions or simply remove it so I can reinstall the version that is in your instructions?
