Hamish, thanks for the response.  I am using GRASS 5.0.0 on a mac (10.2.8).  I
am not sure what you mean by datum support.  I thought that I specified the
datum for a location when I set it up.  Do you mean that I can not project
across datums when using a command like r.proj?

the address for this data is here
