    i just installed fink and it seemed to work. then used it to install
    netpbm and imagemagick which both seemed to work. both are
    command line programs. when i go to a terminal and type in a
    command, however, i get:

    -bash: convert: command not found

    convert is an imagemagick command i've used many times on
    other os's so i know how to use it. i'm thinking this is some kind
    of pathing or config file issue but i really know nothing about how
    this works, where to find such things, or what to type in when i
    find it on osx. any tips, or better yet, specific instructions, are
    much apreciated. please phrase any responses as if you're talking
    to a three year old.

    Fink Commander installs into " ~/sw " by default
    not into " ~/usr " where bash expects to find it !
