       Thanks.  I found the MiKTeX Package Manager, selected 
"inconsolata", then Task -> Install.  This produced, "MiKTeX Problem 
Report:  Failure when receiving data from the peer".  I copied the 
report to clipboard and pasted it (below).  All the directories there 
seem to exist.  What else do you suggest?  (This is on a Windows 7 
notebook.  Is this a feature of Windows 7?  I installed MiKTeX under 
"C:\Users\sgraves" hoping to minimize these kinds of problems.)
