1. Linux version
All of my previous problems were caused by WinZip 
corrupting the download files (e.g. inserting carriage returns
into the shell scripts).  After re-downloading directly to my Linux
machine, everything works as described in the release notes.

2. retrieving knowledge
To become proficient at retrieving knowledge from OpenCyc,
I am reading the online documentation at OpenCyc.org.
Since OpenCyc uses WordNet, I am also reading 
Christiane Fellbaum's "WordNet" book.

3. using knowledge
Next, I will study the structure of OpenCyc's microtheories
(contexts), in order to assess the feasibility of using OpenCyc
for Semantic Web applications.  Don't hold your breath while
waiting for my results.
