For what it's worth, in one of the NASA Channel Pathfinder Updates that 
were broadcast this past weekend I thought that they said that Pathfinder 
landed "12" miles from the coordiantes.  As I recall it was part of a 
pretty interesting discussion about the decission not to make any last 
second course adjustments.  If anyone really cares I'll take another look 
and get back to "ya' all" next week after I return from Louisianna.
