 "as soon as i can figure out how to panelize a
  bunch of small boards onto a larger one in Eagle."

This is especially easy in Eagle - using "group", "cut",
"paste" and a new, target/composite board that is actually
submitted.

In a nutshell:

1) Create a target/composite board (which will be the composite
  of all foils in this board submission).

1a) Save the destination/composite board.

2) Get a pattern/foil for the source-layout. This is done by outlining
  (surrounding) the source layout using "group" followed by "cut". This
  places a pattern in the paste buffer.

3) Open the the destination/composite board.

4) Use "paste" to force the layout from the paste buffer to the foreground
for placement.

4a) Save the target/composite board.

5) Repeat steps 2)through 4a) as necessary.

You're right.  I was having no luck because I was trying to paste the
repeats into the same board - when I create a new board I can run
panelize.ulp, then cut & paste into the new board with no problem.  I had
just missed the part about making a new board for the panelized version,
which of course makes perfect sense (in hindsight).

Hi-
I assume you are running a full version of Eagle.  The free version has
serious limitations on board size.  Does anyone volunteer to panelize for
people with the free version?  Would make significant cost savings on the
boards!

Note about Olimex (that eastern-european board house): they do the
panelization (and cutting) for free, if you just tell them how to
arrange the boards. Just send them the eagle .brd file(s) and a
'panelization plan'.
