hi dan

the main problem s that it just wont load the gui and have found theres 
a error so i dont get to the stage of doing the comports etc

heres the error:

/# chirpw
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/chirpw", line 22, in <module>
    from chirpui import mainapp
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/chirpui/mainapp.py", line 24, 
in <module>
    import serial
ImportError: No module named serial

as i have installed it by the way you suggest as recons it installed ok 
but do i need to do it another way and im using a IC92ad with the icom 
serial cable as have had no probs with the  windows versions with them
