aha:   '--disable-dom'    came up from the php-info ..   how would I  
go about setting the MW installation to use the old parser?   and,  
come to think of it, would having these modules disabled as well cause  
any problems - (in which case I could recompile PHP):

'--without-gd' '--without-odbc' '--disable-dom' '--disable-dba' '-- 
without-unixODBC' '--disable-pdo' '--disable-xmlreader' '--disable- 

thanks very much.
