Hi all, Mark Peveto here.  Looking for some help with audacity.  I've heard folks sware up and down that it's accessible in Linux, but I sure can't
figure it out.  I was trying to edit an mp3 file.  I wanted to remove maybe the first 5 or 10 seconds of one.  I hit left bracket to set my left
boundary, and right bracket to set the right boundry, but when I hit delete, it killed the entire file.  Clearly I'm doing something wrong.  What's the
trick to file editing like this?
