Ok, one last try.  I can't seem to get the plug-in to compile.  But, it
gave me a hint.  It requires Mozilla rather than Firefox.  So, I used
blastwave to install it.  Then, without installing the plugin, you can
log on to Sirius radio and press play.  However, you can't hear it.
The readout appears to suggest that you are logged in and it is playing,
but no audio.  Other applications can play sounds...
