I've posted this to the luv.asn.au main and programmer list.  But have 
you looked at developing it in Kylix, which is the Borland Linux version 
of Delphi.  I'm pretty sure the Open edition is free.  I do believe that 
there may be portability issues though, but not real sure.  I'd check 
with Delphi/Kylix programming groups.
