Appreciate all your help. I'll wait a while and see if anyone else spots any 
other typos, and post one last howto for posterity. Coming from managing 
Windows worlds for 20 years, many of these concepts took some relearning of 
basic assumptions - first I had to realize that it was my basic assumptions 
that were the problem, so this was very useful for me.
