Well, I know I currently have no needs for Oracle or DB2, and might not 
even want the Psql/MySQL driver, either. Therefore, if I were to 
download this package to my Powerbook (only wanting to use SQLite), and

leave me? Do I have to/want to resolve that problem? Or, would be it 
better for me to only download the drivers I need?
