  Thanks, Glynn, I read the details on the man page.

  Here's the contents of the .TFW file:

[rshepard at salmo coeur]$ less O40118C2.TFW

and here's what g.rast -p shows:

  I think that the problem may be just as you say: the project directory is
in State Plane Coordinates and I think that all the SDTS data are in UTM.
The numbers report the same, but the units will be different.

  What I need to do is learn how to change all my existing project data from
SPC to UTM, then try bringing in the data again. I doubt that the client or
the regulatory agencies care what projection/coordinate system/datum is

  Perhaps r.proj will work within a single directory to change everything.
We'll see. :-)
