Thanks Ray!  I was able to get in by using ssh as root and was able to
make the adjustments I needed to.  I apologize for not thinking of that
myself.  I'm still rather new to K12LTSP.

Hi Amy,

Have your tried ssh'ing into the server from another PC? Maybe as root
so that you can make the changes.
