Thanks, Tim. I'll try that instead. I'm guessing now that what I tried 
didn't work because I didn't log in as root after editing .bash_profile. 
I logged in as myself and then switched to root in a terminal.

Well, I'm working from two documents, the document from the IBM site and 
a README that I got from the wiki. I think an understanding on the point 
is coming to me, though slowly. I'll need more time for experimenting, 
which I don't have right now, but I wanted to reply to you as soon as I 
could to thank you for your further help.

Best wishes,
