On (1): Use -qnorm- for a graphical assessment. -qnorm- will likely
use the wrong mean and standard deviation, but the configuration will
still show up as straight in the middle. You can calibrate by
simulating, but the details will depend on your details, which you do
not specify.

On (2): Similar questions are posted on this list frequently. Please
do search the archives.
