Remember that I said it was shorthand so that I would recall what I've 
done if I ever had to do it again.

It doesn't really matter; just pick the newest Monticello version. The 
point is that you need a pool dictionary that is included in the Speech 
package before you can attempt to load VMMaker.

No. It's a PITA to get this done. Unfortunately I didn't write this up 
in detail but I *think* what I did was first loading Freetype from 
Universes and then loading the Freetype-Plugin package from Impara. Or 
something along those lines. I don't recall.

Good luck with it. Please do keep notes as you move along because 
they'll help us to get better instructions in place.
