" Rui, what platform etc.. are you on?"

That is my problem...i try to use a free web host to make a simple
demo of my work.
The server is linux, use apache and permit CGI.

Because i try to build a hello map whithout render any image, i don´t
expect problem whith the libraries so soon. And i have no ideia if i
will can put it working.
