I will answer my own posts then :).  Actually, I think I've solved the below problems.  I found profiling when I chose Language-->Choose Language-->Standard(R5R5).  This in turn changed my error message when trying to load a file.  It no longer includes "reference to undefined identifier: load".  Everything works fine now.  Some of the defaults are different in the nix version of DrScheme.  Navigation might be a little different, but mzscheme is functioning normally as far as I can tell.

The two things I had to do to get it behave right were:

1. Language-->Choose Language-->Unhide Details-->Write
2. Language-->Choose Language-->Unhide Details-->Standard(R5R5) which is at the top of the menu of language levels.

  For list-related administrative tasks:


I'm brand new to DrScheme/Scheme.  Can anyone one tell me if there are know difficulties running scheme under Linux.  I downloaded the UNIX distro, compiled it and everything seemed fine.  When I try and use (load someFile) I get the error "reference to undefined identifier: load".  I'm on expert level, since many of the examples I'm encountering are not understood by beginner.

Also, when I try and access Language-->Choose Language-->Show Details there is no profiling option.  When I try Show-->Show Profile, I get the error "There is no profiling information available. Please be sure that profiling is enabled in your language and you have run your program."  I run the program and still get the same error.

Is the UNIX release different than the Windows release?

Any help appreciated.  Thanks.
