Newbie : Importing map, but nothing appears !

    I'm newbie with a Zaurus 5500, trying qpegps possibilities before buying a CF GPS Unit.
    Here is want I am trying to do but doesn't work at all :
    - I import a small scanned region of topographical map (441Kb)
    - To set projection parameters, I use UTM Coords read from map :
       - I choose one point from top-left corner and set UTM East and North (in meters).
       - I choose one point from bottom-right corner and set UTM East and North (in meters).
       - I define UTM zone : 32N
       - What should I do with scale ?? It is set to 10000 by default.
    - Then I confirm, it processes 20 seconds, but after screen stays black !
    When I come back to properties of my imported map, qpegps did the good conversion in degmin', but nothing appears.
    When I close qpegps and reopen, my map is not in list.

    What have I done wrong ? Please help.
    I suppose it is possible to import map in qpegps for testing without having a GPS Unit plugged ?

    Thx in advance

      Ok, I found ! It was a problem of permission on file maps.txt
