I'm glad you found the library. Thanks for stopping by!

Not really. There are several example problems accessible from
the libmesh webpage that should help you if you are trying to
develop an application. If you just want to learn more about the
mechanics of the library, a combination of web-based Doxygen
documentation and reading through the actual source files is
probably the way to go. I guess there won't be a comprehensive
Programmers and Developers manual until we are sponsored by a
large corporation to create one ;)

Sure. What version (CVS or 0.4.3rc2) of libmesh are you attempting to
build, and how was your PETSc installation created? One possibility
is that the version of petsc installed on your computer is newer
(2.2.x) than the version supported in the last release of libmesh. In
that case, try the CVS version of libmesh. On the other hand, it may
be that your PETSC_DIR and PETSC_ARCH variables are not set correctly.
In this case, you will probably have to set them by hand and
